Wilde Ferris


I am excited to be working on my PhD, after completing both my BAH and MPhil here at Queen's as well! My area of interest lies in the Queer Victorian, with a specific interest in the interaction between religion, ghosts, the gothic, and the Queer body. My research also includes explorations of class from a marxist view, and a special interest in Victorian lesbianism.
