Anna Gutowska has a PhD in English from Warsaw University, Poland and MAs in English and Sociology (also from Warsaw University). She wrote her PhD thesis on the use of popular fiction tropes in selected novels by George Eliot.

Anna has worked as Assistant Professor of English literature at the University of Kielce, Poland and she is currently Marie Curie Fellow at the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies.

Research

After completing her PhD, Anna changed her main research focus from Victorian literature to Neo-Victorianism and to modern adaptations of nineteenth-century literature. Her current research project focuses on the portrayal of female characters in adaptations of canonical nineteenth-century novels written by women.

In her project, Anna uses an interdisciplinary methodology that merges the perspectives of adaptation studies, gender studies and industry-oriented approach within film studies in order to study the growing empowerment of heroines in recent screen and transmedia adaptations of four novels by Jane Austen, Emily Brontë and Charlotte Brontë.
