Raluca Radulescu

Professor of Medieval Literature and English Literature, Bangor University

Educated at University of Bucharest (BA) and Manchester (MPhil, PhD), Dr Radulescu has taught at the Universities of Manchester, Trinity College Dublin and François Rabelais, Tours, and held fellowships at New Europe College, Institute for Advanced Studies, (Bucharest), Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (Paris) and the Huntington Library (as Andrew Mellon fellow).

To date my research has focused on Arthurian and non-Arthurian romances (Sir Thomas Malory and pious romances), medieval chronicles (the Brut tradition and genealogical rolls), political culture and gentry studies. Overall my approach is informed by book history and cultural history - in particular the identification of trends, be they related to the emergence of a group's or individual's identity, political propaganda, or other.
