Christos Hadjiyiannis was born in Nicosia, Cyprus and was, until recently, Fulbright Visiting Scholar at UT Austin.

He was previously Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Cyprus and, before that, Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford. His first book, Conservative Modernists: Literature and Tory Politics in Britain, 1900-1920 (Cambridge University Press, 2018), examined different ways in which modernist writing was imbricated with Tory rhetoric and ideology in Edwardian Britain. His new project, Modern Martyrs: Martyrdom in Modern and Contemporary Literature, investigates the usage of Christian martyrdom by modern and contemporary poets and artists, looking at, among others, Anne Sexton, Frank Bidart, Sharon Olds, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Solmaz Sharif, and Marina Abramovic.
