My name is Stephanie Gallon. All works here are my own unless otherwise stated. I am currently studying PGCE PCET, and I have ambitions of doing a PhD in the future. I am a published author, poet and fan of lycanthropy literature and the Gothic.
If you wish to contact me, email me at email@example.com with “Gothic and Academia” as the subject title. I do guest blogging requests.
I graduated with a Distinction in MA English Studies in 2015 from the University of Sunderland. The modules I completed included Irish Supernaturalism, Early Gothic, Literary Theory, and Modernism and Postmodernism. I also completed a 16,000 word dissertation on the evolution of the female werewolf in English literature from a feminist perspective, using Clemence Housman’s The Were-wolf, Angela Carter’s The Werewolf and Wolf-Alice, and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga as case studies.
I graduated with First Class Honours in BA English and Creative Writing in 2014. The modules I completed included Shakespeare, Modern Gothic, Late Medieval Literature and Genre Fiction in my third year. In my second year I completed Reading and Writing Prose Fiction, Romanticism, Victorian Literature, Modern Poetry, Renaissance Literature and Literary Theory, History and Criticism. In first year, I completed modules on Stylistics, Lyrical and Narrative Poetry, Introduction to Creative Writing, Introduction to Literature I and Introduction to Literature II.
Also in my third year, I completed a 40 credit module which required me to complete an 8,000 word portfolio and 2,000 critical commentary. I wrote a prose piece of detective fiction accompanied by a critical essay on the conventions and tropes of modern crime fiction.
