Dominic Glynn joined City U in 2018 from the University of London, where he was Lecturer in French Studies at the Institute of Modern Languages Research. Following a career in professional theatre, his primary area of research is in theatre translation and adaptation. In his monograph (Re)Telling Old Stories (Peter Lang, 2015), he analysed the dynamics of translating ancient mythological narratives to the late twentieth century French stage through the prism of two productions by Peter Brook and Ariane Mnouchkine. He has also worked on the bilingual oeuvre of Samuel Beckett, and its reception in France and the UK. Since October 2017, he has been the principle investigator of an Arts and Humanities Research Network Grant (UK) entitled “Literature under Constraint” (LUC). The LUC project assembles a cutting-edge network of researchers and stakeholders (publishers, writers and translators) from the UK, Europe and North America. The research team works to elucidate which factors (mind-sets, political context, social environments, intermediaries) shape and constrain literary production, but also to explore whether constraint bolsters creative activity. He is the general editor (with Catherine Davies) of the Journal of Romance Studies (https://online.liverpooluniversitypress.co.uk/loi/jrs).
