Kathryn Ambrose

Kathryn Ambrose gained her PhD thesis on the ‘woman question’ in mid- to late-nineteenth-century Russian, German and English literatures, at Keele University in 2010. This work seeks to provide a revisionist reading of the popular approach in feminist criticism of the semiotics of space, by looking instead at the semiotics of barriers.

She has a first-class degree in English and German (Keele, 2000) and a Masters in Research degree in Russian, with distinction (Keele, 2006). She worked as a teacher of English/Modern Languages until 2014, and is now preparing her thesis for publication ahead of applying for an academic post.
