Associate Lecturer in English, Manchester Metropolitan University

I am an early career researcher, writer and small press publisher, currently based in Manchester, UK. My research interests include medieval popular romance, contemporary genre fiction, horror film and monsters. I writes poetry and fiction under the name Hannah Kate.

In 2001, I got an MA (Hons) in English from the University of St. Andrews, and returned to Manchester to work for a charity. I returned to academia in 2004, and completed an MA in Medieval and Early Modern English studies at the University of Manchester in 2005. I was awarded a PhD in English (also from the University of Manchester and supervised by Dr. Anke Bernau) in 2010, with my thesis entitled ‘Monstrous Identity in Late Medieval Insular Romance and Lais’.
