Molly Heaton is a 3rd year PhD student in the School of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics. Their research is a case study of late-Victorian writer William Sharp / Fiona Macleod, focusing on the role of social networking in literary production. The project looks at the role of the network in the development of literary careers, and the ways in which social, personal connections provided opportunities to publish. It also looks at the ways in which networks restricted the ability to publish, and the interactions between literary work as 'work' and literary work as 'art'. The project also delves into queer networks, looking at identity creation and self-expression within networked space.
Their MA research looked at the motif of the country house in early 20th century women's writing, exploring it as an expression of gendered anxiety.
