I am a PhD candidate in the Department of English. My dissertation examines nineteenth-century American fiction narratives with Gothic motifs and argues that these Gothic elements help us to reconsider how gender and sexuality were constructed in this era. I also tutor in the Writing Program’s Writing Center.
