Dr Monika Smialkowska
Dr Monika Smialkowska is a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern Literature at Northumbria University.
Her current research interest lies in post-renaissance adaptations and appropriations of early modern authors and genres. She has published book chapters and journal articles on the topic, focussing chiefly on the ways in which the Shakespeare Tercentenary of 1916 was celebrated across the world, and on the ways the North East of England participated in the 2012 World Shakespeare Festival. She edited a special issue of Shakespeare on the topic of ‘Shakespeare and the Great War’ (2014). She is working on a monograph about the 1916 Shakespeare Tercentenary, and co-editing, with Edmund King, a collection of essays entitled Memorialising Shakespeare: Commemoration and Collective Identity, 1916-2016 (forthcoming with Palgrave).
