As I mentioned before, I am in a college masters program. I work primarily in gender and literature, looking at horror.
I was recently at SWPACA presenting on Hannibal, Homosexuality, and the Aestheticization of violence.
For me that was a fascinating topic. I am now going to be focusing on the way that gender and sexuality are used in Penny Dreadfuls and expanding my paper on Hannibal to include an analysis of vampire literature to see the various ways that the vampire novel allows for freedom of expression sexually whereas other horror and violent literature does not allow for that same sexual expression.
