Eva Hudecova received her PhD in comparative literature with a minor in Germanic studies from the University of Minnesota in 2009. Her work deals with eastern and central European literature and culture, concentrating on the reflection of the totalitarian regime in that literature. She reads, interprets, and translates texts that seek to relay personal experiences and stories from this regime to the western reader.
Hudecova's most recent project was one of translation (linguistic and cultural). Along with professor Mark Lencho of the University of Wisconsin, Hudecova translated Michal Hvorecky's Slovak novel Danube in America into English.
