Profile Information

 
BA English and American Literature & Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece (First/'Arista')
MA 19th and 20th Century Novel, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, UK
PhD at the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory, Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales, UK
 
Associate Fellow, Wolfson College, Cambridge University
Visiting Fellowship, CRASSH, Cambridge University, September-December 2009
 
Prior to being awarded the PhD, I taught seminars for the English Literature and Cultural Criticism degrees at Cardiff University (1996-1998) and held a temporary lectureship in English Literature at Boston College, Lincolnshire (Spring Semester 1998) while awaiting my viva voce. My first full-time appointment was at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, in the department of 'European Philosophy and Literature' (later renamed 'Philosophy' and then merged with other departments), where I taught European literature and philosophy from 1998 until 2006 and also set up and directed the degree in Comparative Literature.
 
Over the years I have taught a wide variety of courses which have expanded my already diverse educational background and interests. Starting from strong readings in British and American literature, French literature and Ancient Greek literature, I have also been reading philosophical texts from a young age as well as modern Greek poetry. My other passions include cinema (from all over the world), dance and theatre. Occasionally, these appear in my teaching and research work. Although my doctoral thesis examined Romanticism in a comparative and European perspective, in the last few years, I have focused my teaching and research on British Romanticism as I am working on a monograph study of truth and autobiographical modes in British Romantic writing.
