Research overview

My PhD research explores the critical relationship between the Gothic literary tradition and celebrity in contemporary literature, media, and culture, with roots in the nineteenth century. I am interested in the ways in which ideas of monstrosity, horror, and abjection are employed in narrative forms to reflect celebrity culture, the concept of fame, and celebrities themselves. My thesis aims to establish the presence of an unexplored narrative form of Gothicised celebrity that developed in the nineteenth century and continues to be rewritten and reimagined in the contemporary.
