Christopher Yiannitsaros

Christopher Yiannitsaros researches and teaches in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. His doctoral thesis examines the use of the Gothic in the fiction of Agatha Christie. More broadly, he has research interests in Gothic literature (including film and television) from mid-nineteenth century through to the present day, constructions of English national identity in and by 'middlebrow' and genre fiction from the 1880s to the 1950s, the importance of front cover design and how this influences/changes the 'meaning' of the text, and the interrelations between narrative and ethics in contemporary British and American fiction. He has also published articles in ‘The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies’ and ‘Women: A Cultural Review’.
