Meet our Authors: Silvia Baučeková – April 2017

Silvia Rosivalová Baučeková is Assistant Professor at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovakia. As a PhD candidate, she participated in a double-degree study programme and earned her doctorate from Universidad de Jaén in Spain and from Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in 2014.

Her current research focuses on the possibility of applying methods developed by the emerging field of food studies in the analysis of fiction. Her other research interests include 20th century English poetry, women’s studies, and popular fiction studies. She currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on the history of British literature and on British popular fiction. She is a member of the Slovak Association for the Study of English.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Silvia has authored Dining Room Detectives: Analysing Food in the Novels of Agatha Christie, in which a structuralist approach to Golden Age crime fiction is complemented by methodology developed in the field of food studies in order to demonstrate the twofold role that food plays in Agatha Christie’s novels.

Silvia describes her experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

Baucekova.jpg“I worked with Cambridge Scholars on the publication of my very first book and I only have good things to say about the entire process, from the earliest stages through to the date of publication. The team at Cambridge Scholars was very understanding and sensitive to my needs as a novice author. The communication with everyone at Cambridge Scholars was prompt, easy and efficient. All of the editors I came into contact with were highly professional and knowledgeable, but also kind and willing to help. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam Baker and David Luscombe, who were extremely patient with me throughout the publication process, and provided me with the time and space necessary to produce a book that I am one hundred percent happy with. Furthermore, I was given the chance to have complete control over the design of the cover of my book, which I really appreciated. Whether you are an experienced author or you are just about to publish your first work, I can wholeheartedly recommend publishing with Cambridge Scholars.”
