Dr. Christina Smylitopoulos is a specialist in art and visual culture of the long eighteenth century. She received her PhD from McGill University and, before joining the art history faculty at the University of Guelph, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Yale Center for British Art. Her current research traces the significance of Regency illustrated books, which occupy an unclear position in the trajectory from stand-alone Georgian graphic satire to the Victorian comic.
