Dr. Katerina Marazi is an Assistant Professor at the English Studies Department CITY College, University of York Europe Campus.


She holds a BA in English Language and Literature, an MA in American Literature and Culture, a PhD in Intercultural Studies and American Pop Culture and a Post-graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching (CiLT) in Higher Education from the University of Sheffield.


Her research interests include adaptation and brand identity theory, transmedia storytelling, and media franchise culture. She is particularly interested in the context of the entertainment industry, media studies, and reception studies. Her doctoral dissertation views adaptation as a cultural process of dialogic meaning-making and power play. In addition to the textual comparison of adaptations employed mainly in Literary Studies, she argues for the contextual comparison of intellectual property adaptations in franchise culture through the implementation of brand identity.


Dr. Marazi is a member of the Hellenic Association for American Studies, the European Association for American Studies and the Hellenic Semiotic Society. She is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.


Her teaching experience ranges from undergraduate to postgraduate courses in areas such as Literature, Film, Media and Cultural Studies.
