Fred Hook


I am a first-year PhD student, and I completed my BAH in English Literature with a minor in Drama and a certificate in Law from Queen's University in 2021, and finished my MA in Romantic and Victorian Literary Studies from Durham University in 2022. Some of my literary and research interests are Victorian literature, queer theory, gender and sexuality, the monstrous, and the codification of language. I have previously conducted research projects on the use of The Picture of Dorian Gray in Oscar Wilde's 1895 libel trial, the representation of sexuality in female vampires in Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla and Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, and the portrayal of the werewolf in a selection of nineteenth-century short stories in England and Canada.
