Biography

I took my undergraduate degrees in Hungarian, English and Portuguese at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. I completed my PhD in the Department of English Literature at Edinburgh University, and then took an MSc in Library and Information Studies at Stratchlyde. I have worked at Essex University, the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (London); Glasgow University, and De Montfort University. I was appointed Lecturer in Hungarian Studies at Glasgow University in 2008.

Research interests

My research interests focus around the concept of ‘travel:’ travel writing, reception studies, publishing history, and any cultural, literary and historical aspect of Hungarian studies.
I welcome proposals in the following fields:

  • Hungarian culture and literature, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries
  • European women’s writing
  • reception and translation studies, especially the reception of Hungarian literature elsewhere, and the reception of European literature in Victorian Britain

Teaching

Teaching
