I am a scholar and writer.

I teach medieval English literature at the University of Bonn, where I also research the history of education and charismatic women of the Middle Ages.

I also write essays for the public, on topics such as food, dance, migration, and literature. My current obsession is with imperfection in all its forms.

I am represented by Emma Parry at Janklow & Nesbit. You can also reach me via irinaalexandradumitrescu (at) gmail.com .
