Current and Recent Research Students
Mrs Naomi Carle
I completed both my BA and MA degrees at Durham University between 2004 and 2008 before moving to London to work for a small charity. In 2010 my husband and I moved back to Durham and I began work on my PhD. I am writing my doctoral thesis on wilderness, Bakhtin's chronotope and post-Romantic imagination in the work of Robert Louis Stevenson, focusing on his novels and short stories, under the supervision of Dr Simon James. My wider research interests include Victorian and fin-de-siècle literary culture, wilderness and imagination in the History of Ideas, island studies, the concept of memory in narrative, etymology and narrative theory.
