Veronika Krajíčková

Mgr. Veronika Krajíčková is a PhD student at the Department of Anglophone Literatures and Cultures and her dissertation research focuses on Virginia Woolf’s fiction analysed by means of process philosophy (her dissertation is entitled The Problem of the Fixity of Tables: Virginia Woolf as a Non-Dualist and Process-Oriented Thinker). This link with process-oriented philosophy enables the analysis of Woolf’s rejection of dualisms, for example the subject and the object, or the human and the nonhuman. Veronika is mainly interested in English and American modernism, particularly in modernist women authors such as Woolf, Mansfield, Barnes, or Rhys, but also in contemporary British fiction. In the past, she spent a term at the University of Kent in Canterbury (2019/2020), as a part of her doctoral studies, and at Université Paris-Sorbonne (2015/2016), as a part of her MA studies in English and French literature. She is a member of the International Virginia Woolf Society and presented papers at various conferences both in the Czech Republic and abroad. She contributes regularly to the online literary magazine iLiteratura.cz.
