In Memoriam Daniela S. Hristova (1962-2010)

I am sorry to report the sad news that Daniela Hristova, Temporary Lecturer
in the Department of Slavonic Languages at the University of Cambridge,
Trinity Hall, passed away on Oct. 10 from cancer. She was 48 years old.

Daniela was a graduate student at the University of Chicago when she came
to Harvard in 1999–2000 as a visiting scholar in the Slavic Department to
take advanced Slavic linguistics courses and pursue research on historical
East Slavic syntax for her doctoral dissertation. She had participated in
the Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute program in the summer of 1999. She
taught at Chicago for five years after receiving her Ph.D. in Slavic
linguistics in 2002.

She was the recipient of a Eugene and Daymel Shklar fellowship in the fall
of 2005 to conduct research at the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute.
In the spring of 2006, she taught two graduate courses in Slavic
linguistics in the Harvard Slavic Department. In the fall of 2008 she
accepted her current position at Cambridge, teaching courses in historical
Slavic linguistics.

Daniela was a vibrant, energetic scholar with boundless curiosity and an
indefatigable work ethic. In addition to her many academic achievements,
she was a talented writer, translator, designer, real estate developer,
gourmet chef, and marathon runner. Daniela will long be remembered for her
sunny smile, her eternal optimism, and her zest for living. She is
survived by her husband Vladimir Tchernev and their son Ivo.
