My name is Hayley Louise Charlesworth and I am a PhD candidate in Gothic Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. I completed a BA Hons in Creative Writing and Film Studies at Roehampton University between 2007 and 2010, where I achieved a first class honours. After a five year break to work in 16-19 education, I returned to my own study by completing an MA in English Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. Here, I was awarded a Masters with Distinction and the Programme Leader’s Prize for Outstanding Achievement. I am currently working towards a PhD in Gothic Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. My research is focused on depictions of bisexuality in post-millennial Gothic television, although I also research other elements of contemporary Gothic and queer theory.
