Biography

Dr. Krisztina Lajosi (1977) is Assistant Professor (Universitair Docent) in Modern European Literature and Culture at the Department of European Studies of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. Her main research area focuses on the intersections of nationalism studies and cultural history, with particular attention to the history of musical culture and literature.
She is the research coordinator of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences project "National Music and Cultural Transfer in Europe". She has also been a lecturer in comparative literature at the Universiteit Utrecht and at University College Utrecht, and a lecturer in nineteenth- and twentieth-century English literature at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
She holds both BA and MA degrees in both English and American Literature and Linguistics and Comparative Literature. She was awarded a PhD degree in cultural history for her dissertation on the role of operas in nineteenth-century national movements (Universiteit van Amsterdam, 2008). 
Her publications focus on the interactions between the aesthetic and political discourses and practices of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She has been publishing on the representations of politics and history in nineteenth-century operas and on operatic re-mediations of literary works. 
She supervises theses on subjects including: nationalism, nineteenth-century intellectual and cultural history, opera and music as social and cultural practices, emotion studies, crowds and mobs, colonialism, and last but not least on English and American literature.
