Dr. Irene Makaryk Receives Title of Distinguished University Professor

Posted on Wednesday, October 9, 2019

Congratulations to the department's own Dr. Irene Makaryk who has been granted the title of Distinguished University Professor by the University of Ottawa's administration.

Dr. Makaryk is a cherished colleague and respected member of our community, and has exemplified the high levels of dedication, thoughtfulness and creativity that have come to be associated with our English department. During her time as a faculty member at the University of Ottawa, she has contributed many tireless years of research to the study of Shakespearean literature and performance; to quote the Ottawa Citizen, she has "illuminated and enriched the study of Shakespeare both in the West and in the East through her incisive studies of Soviet, especially Ukrainian, Shakespeare...[and] her scholarship is distinguished by its interdisciplinarity, breadth, rigour, and deep understanding of many national traditions and languages."

As a department, we both congratulate Dr. Makaryk on this achievement and thank her for her service to the department.
