Matthew Reznicek

Matthew Reznicek recently completed his PhD at Queen’s University Belfast. His doctoral research examined the development of capitalism and selfhood in Irish women’s novels, analysing the economic Bildungsroman in novels by Sydney Owenson, Maria Edgeworth, Somerville and Ross, and Kate O’Brien set in Paris. His research interests include the European city, the representation of opera, and the development of capitalism in Irish fiction. More broadly, he is interested in the relationship between Irish women’s literature and continental European writers, especially Balzac and Zola. His article ‘These Irish Investments: Money as an Organizing Principle in Kate O’Brien’s As Music and Splendour’ is forthcoming in Women’s Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal. He is currently co-editing a collection of essays on Kate O’Brien.
