Christopher Yiannitsaros was awarded his PhD from the University of Warwick in 2017. His AHRC funded thesis - Deadly Domesticity: Agatha Christie’s “Middlebrow” Gothic, 1930-1970 - examined Christie’s use of the Gothic, particularly via her nineteenth-century interlocutors. He has published variously on women’s twentieth-century “middlebrow” fiction and the Gothic, with journal articles and book chapters that examine works by Molly Keane, Daphne du Maurier and Agatha Christie. He also has burgeoning research interests in the relationships between food and textual culture. With Mary Addyman and Laura Wood, he is co-editor of Food, Drink and the Written Word in Britain, 1820-1945 (Routledge, 2017). He is also a qualified primary school teacher with a PGCE from UCL Institute of Education (2017), specialising in teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage. He lives and works in London, where he is a Reception class teacher and Early Reading Co-ordinator.
