Rudolph Glitz

Rudolph Glitz is University Lecturer of English Literature and Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

He studied Philosophy, German, and English in Heidelberg and Berlin before completing his MPhil in European Literature at King's College, Cambridge and his DPhil in English Literature at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. After two years as assistant professor of British Studies and English Literature at Harlaxton College, the British Campus of the University of Evansville, he moved to Amsterdam in 2007. His rather varied research interests are spread across the fields of nineteenth and twentieth-century fiction, modernist poetry, philosophy, Hollywood film, and computer game studies. In his monograph, he looks at how the family sagas of, in particular, Bennett, Galsworthy, Lawrence, and Woolf helped construct the Victorian past.
