Christopher Yiannitsaros

Christopher Yiannitsaros completed his doctoral thesis - Deadly Domesticity: Agatha Christie's 'Middlebrow' Gothic, 1930-1970 - at the University of Warwick in 2016. His primary research interest is in 20th Century female-authoured 'middlebrow' fiction of the inter- and post-war periods, and the ways in which this particular kind of fiction intersects with the older literary tradition of the Gothic. More broadly, he has research interests in, and has published on topics that include: Gothic fiction from the mid-nineteenth century through to the present day; domestic spaces and cultures; constructions of English national identity in 'middlebrow' and genre fiction, 1880s-1960s; and literature and/of food. He has published various articles on Gothic and, with Mary Addyman and Laura Wood, is the co-editor of Food, Drink and the Written Word in Britain, 1820-1945 (Routledge, 2017). He is currently based at the UCL Institute of Education.
