On Sept 2 2021 the International Dostoevsky Society celebrates the joyful occasion of its 50th birthday. Our society was founded in Bad-Ems, Germany, on September 2, 1971. Scholars Nadine Natov, Dmitry Grishin, Rudolf Neuhauser, and Reinhard Lauth organized our first Symposium, with the active participation of Robert Louis Jackson, Malcolm V. Jones, Joseph Frank, Jacques Catteau, Horst-Jurgen Gerigk, Irene Zohrab, and other brilliant colleagues. These visionary scholars laid a firm foundation for what has become the world’s foremost organization for the study of Dostoevsky.
We are proud to celebrate our 50th birthday during Dostoevsky’s bicentennial year, which is being commemorated worldwide, notably in Asia, where the IDS will hold its XVIII Symposium in Nagoya, Japan, in 2022.

For over 150 years the work of F.M. Dostoevsky has stirred the imagination of readers all over the world. A master storyteller, he combined a psychologist’s perception with a philosopher’s depth and a political dissident’s suspicion of authority. Controversial during his lifetime and to this day, he revolutionized world literature with works like Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Devils, and The Brothers Karamazov.
