The modern department of the Russian language and literature was created in 2016 as a result of the unification of the departments of the Russian language and contrastive linguistics and Russian and foreign literature.
The training of teachers of Russian literature at Elabuga Institute has deep traditions, the historical roots of which go back to 1905, when pedagogical classes for the preparation of teachers of Russian literature and history were formed within the walls of the women's diocesan school.
Thus, it is possible to talk about more than a hundred-year tradition of training philology teachers in the Lower Kama Region. This process was continued at the subsequent stages of development of the educational institution. So, in the teacher's institute opened in 1939, which was later reorganized into the State Pedagogical Institute, a single philological department began to function, bringing together specialists in Russian, Tatar and foreign philology.
Actually, the Russian language department was organized in 1953, three years later literary scholars went out of its composition and created a new department of Russian and foreign literature. The first heads of the departments were already having then scientific degrees - L. I. Chagina and K. R. Reshidov.
A great contribution to the development of philological education in our university was made by the heads of the department, associate professors N.A. Verderevskaya, N.I. Shaydullina, N.N. Anikina. At various times, such talented literary scholars as O.I. Fedotov, M.Ya.Levyant, M.I.Bent, B.A. Mints, E.P. Baryshnikov worked at the department of Russian and foreign literature. , N. D. Tamarchenko, V. M. Golovko, F. I. Urmancheev, T.N. Galiullin. Many of them continued their research and teaching work at the largest universities in Russia and abroad, in research institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Tatarstan.
In the last decade of the 20th century, with the advent of doctors of science, professors (N.M. Valeev, D.A. Salimova, A.I. Razzhivin, who headed the departments for more than two decades), scientific schools were formed. In the 2000s, postgraduate studies were opened in two specialties: 10.02.01 - Russian, 10.01.01 - Russian literature. Both graduate programs are effective, more than twenty candidates of philological sciences have been trained.
Under the guidance of Doctor of Philology, Professor D.A. Salimova several areas in the science of language are developed: “Russian language in intercultural space”, “Regional linguistics”, “Psycholinguistic foundations for regulating the speech behavior of bilinguals”, “Artistic text as a translator of languages and cultures”, “Proper name in modern paradigms of scientific cultural space”.
Doctor of Philology, Professor N.M. Valeev with his students raised a large layer of merchant literature, previously unexplored and almost a century in oblivion. Not only merchant subjects in Russian literature were investigated, but also patronage and charitable activities of the Russian merchants, the works of the writer D.I. Stakheev were republished, scientific monographs were published. The topic “Forgotten and Little-studied Russian Writers” has been of scientific interest for the department for two decades. The works of D.I. Shakheev, G.P.Kameneva, V.A.Dyachenko, A.A.Shishkov, forgotten critics A.L.Volynsky, V.P. Burenin were studied. Scientific papers "Forgotten and little-studied writers as a phenomenon of Russian culture" (2009) was published.

For three years, the laboratory specialists have done a significant amount of work: “Comprehensive diagnostic tests for German-Russian bilinguals from 3 to 14 years old: practical recommendations for testing bilingual children and adolescents” were developed; Innovative tools developed in the laboratory were introduced in a number of countries (Russia, Germany, Spain, Greece): “Skazkoteka - a multifunctional educational resource for learning the basics of Russian ethnoculture”, “RoadMapBilingual” - an electronic diagnostic questionnaire for parents and teachers, an interactive “Preschool Portfolio Calendar "With maps of children’s development from 1 to 6-7 years, the Children of the World Game Store - 8 multifunctional modular games for various age categories and target groups - in their totality are complex A tool for psychological and pedagogical support of bilingual from the initial diagnosis of the development of bilingualism to the formation of interculturality and integration into the multicultural space.
