Catalin Nicolau

My name is Cătălin Nicolau and I am a graduate student of the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University, where I specialised in English and Romanian literature and language. I earned my bachelor degree in 2004 with a thesis on Victorian literature.

I also got two MA’s from the same university, one in American Cultural Studies and the other in General Linguistics.

I hold a doctoral degree from “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University in the field of diachronic linguistics.

My fields of interest are literature, critical theory, linguistics (mainly diachronic so far), the history and philosophy of science.

I teach high-school English and I also teach English language seminars to the students of the Faculty of Letters în Iaşi

So far, I have published a few scientific articles:
