Elena Fratto investigates the rhetorical, stylistic, and structural intersections of literature and science, with a specific focus on medicine, astronomy, and non-Euclidean geometries in the late nineteenth and the early twentieth century. She has also published on Boris Eikhenbaum, Formalist fiction and the visual arts, the post-Soviet Kitsch aesthetics, and Russian literature and music. Her book manuscript, Medical Storyworlds, addresses the narrative structure of medical knowledge in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Russia, Italy, and France.
