Deputy Head of School and Head of Subject
My research is in the area of English Literature.
Katie Gramich is originally from Ceredigion in West Wales and was educated at the Universities of Aberystwyth, London, and Alberta. She has lived in Spain, Canada, England, and Wales, and has a good knowledge of German, Spanish, Italian and French, as well as her native Welsh and English.
She is interested in comparative, feminist, and gender studies, with a particular current focus on poetry. With Professor Claire Connolly at University College Cork and Dr Paul O'Leary at Aberystwyth University, she runs the Wales-Ireland Research Network.
Modules taught by Katie include 'Early Twentieth-Century Poetry', 'Modern Welsh Writing in English', and 'Literature, Culture, and Place', on the BA in English Literature and 'Modernisms' and 'Gender in Modern Poetry' on the MA in English Literature.
My research to date has focused on a) rediscovering neglected Welsh women writers and bringing their work back into the public domain and b) bringing comparative and feminist perspectives to bear on wide a range of twentieth-century literature.
