Ramona Simuț (b. 1976) is reader in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory at Emanuel University of Oradea, Romania. In the course of her academic training, Ramona completed her bachelor studies with a double major in literature and theology from the University of Oradea, Romania, and afterwards pursued her theological interest at the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy within the University of Aberdeen, UK. Later on she commenced her doctoral studies in the Netherlands, where she was awarded her PhD in philology at Utrecht University in 2010. Ramona’s professional career began in 2000 as an editor, and for the next 10 years she was involved in tens of various theological and literary editorial projects, many of which she also supervised as director of Emanuel University Press. In 2009 she took up her teaching position in literature at Emanuel University, while her research coupled her interest in comparative literature, cultural studies and the history of ideas with her rekindled fascination with the work and theology of Edward Schillebeeckx, resulting in a two-year research contract with the Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, under the supervision of Prof. Johann Meylahn.
