Brecht de Groote

Brecht de Groote is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy of the University of Ghent. Combining methods at the intersection of translation studies, media theory, and literary theory, he investigates the ways in which British Romanticism was shaped by practices and theories of translation and mediation. He is particularly interested in late-Romantic culture (1820s through 1840s), and is currently working on a project on Romantic (pseudo)translation, mediation, printing technologies, and hoaxing. He has a monograph with Edinburgh University Press, Thomas De Quincey: Romanticism in Translation.
