I am an academic and linguist working on cultural exchanges between Anglophone and European literary traditions. I champion the literatures of small European nations, and edited, introduced and co-translated the first English-language anthology of celebrated French-Romanian author Matéi Visniec's theatre, Matéi Visniec: How to Explain the History of Communism to Mental Patients and Other Plays (Seagull Books, 2015). I published extensively on translation and adaptation for the stage, European and British theatre, transculturalism and women's writing, including the study Staging Motherhood: British Women Playwrights, 1956 to the Present (Palgrave, 2006). My critical anthology from the work of Transylvanian-Hungarian playwright András Visky, Memories of the Body: Captivity as a State of Being in András Visky’s Barrack Dramaturgy, is forthcoming from Intellect in early 2017, and am currently working on a study on radical revival as adaptation for Palgrave I am on the editorial board of the Journal of Adaptation in Film and Theatre, and a Research Fellow in the Centre for Adaptations at De Montfort University. I am based in London, where I teach at the University of the Arts.
