ABOUT

My name is Georgina Gale, and I'm a PhD student based at the University of Glasgow (split with the University of Stirling). Currently my research focuses on the influence of the gothic on late-Victorian journalism, but as you might guess from this website, I am interested in most things relating to gothic fiction and the Victorian era! 

I created this website to accompany my Twitter account (@VictorianGothik, aka 'Gothic Girl') as a means of sharing free educational content relating to my two main interests. This includes:

  • Regular tweets

  • An index of nineteenth-century authors with short biographies and links to their work

  • An open access library of Victorian gothic texts

  • A blog 

 

An additional goal of the library is to produce copies of these texts in various formats to make it accessible to all (e.g. with a dyslexic-friendly files, PDF formats, and web versions). 

This work is something I undertake voluntarily in my spare time, so I'm extremely grateful for any support you can offer by:

  • Sourcing original copies of texts

  • Notifying me of gaps in the existing lists

  • Giving feedback on how to make the site/content more accessible

  • Supporting me via Ko-fi (using the button at the very bottom of this page)
