I am a scholar and writer.

I am the professor for medieval English literature at the University of Bonn, where I organize the Bonn Lectures in the Public Humanities. I’m also one of the hosts of the London Review of Books podcast miniseries, Close Readings: Encounters with Medieval Women, and a columnist at the Times Literary Supplement.

I am available for research presentations, literary readings, workshops on public writing for academics, and one-on-one coaching for scholars hoping to write for the general public.

If you’d like to be updated about my publications or other activities, and hear my occasional thoughts on creativity, writing, and reading, please subscribe to my newsletter, The Process.

You can reach me via irinaalexandradumitrescu at google mail. I am represented by Emma Parry at Janklow & Nesbit.
