CV for Dr Patricia Zakreski


I am a Senior Lecturer in Victorian Literature and Culture. My main research interests are women’s writing and women’s work and art and design history in the Victorian period. My current work explores the relationship between authorship and the decorative arts in the second half of the nineteenth century, and I am currently writing a monograph entitled Designing the Novel: Women’s Writing and the Decorative Arts. More broadly, I am interested in the interactions of different forms of art in the nineteenth century and the interplay between aesthetics and economics.

My office hours this term are  Wednesdays 12:00-13:30 and Fridays 9:30-11. You can book these hours online here
