Dr Monika Smialkowska

Senior Lecturer

Department: Humanities

Monika SmialkowskaI did my first degree (a Polish MA) in English, choosing early modern literature as the focus of my final dissertation. I continued that interest at a postgraduate level. My first job was at the University Centre Doncaster (2002-2009), first as a part-time research fellow in poetry and drama, and then as a full-time teaching research fellow. I joined Northumbria University in March 2009 as a lecturer. I have published several articles concerning early modern literature and twentieth-century American appropriations of Shakespeare.
