I research contemporary children's gothic literature and film, as well as the 'gothic' history of children's literature, with a particular focus on the reading 'child' gothic fiction constructs. I am also interested in Weird Fiction, the 'Cthulhu Mythos' fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, and the history of horror film. In addition, I research 'geek' and 'fan' subcultures.

Current Teaching

I am an Associate Lecturer with the Department of English and Creative Writing and I teach first, second and third year undergraduate English Literature, including The Theory and Practice of Criticism and Victorian Popular Fiction.

Qualifications

I have a BA (hons) in English Literature and French, a Masters in Literary Research and a PGCE (Secondary) in English, Drama and Media. I am currently studying for a PhD.

Research Grants

I currently hold a Fee-Waiver Grant from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for my PhD project. In addition, I am working on a university funded Knowledge Exchange project, with Dr. Catherine Spooner, titled ' Young Adult Gothic: Readers, Writers, Scholars.'

Additional Information

I am the editor of The Luminary - an interdisciplinary journal, hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, at Lancaster University. Please see:
