I am a scholar and writer.

I am the professor for medieval English literature at the University of Bonn, and am currently the Public Humanities Faculty Fellow at the Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto.

I am the organizer of the Bonn Lectures in the Public Humanities, 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 and writing, 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.
