The Pushkin studies is the branch of literary criticism which researches the life and works of Aleksandr Pushkin. The Wisconsin–Madison Prof. Aleksandr Dolinin divides the Pushkin studies in Russia into the Saint Petersburg and Moscow currents. He describes the last one as "weak", noting that it tries to follow the traditions of Russian religious philosophers from the 1st half of the 20th century.[1] Instead he testifies the vigorous wave of Pushkin studies in 1910-1940s.[1]

One of the most prominent American Pushkinists was J. Thomas Shaw. The Wisconsin Center for Pushkin Studies has published The Pushkin Handbook.
