Donna Mitchell is an English Literature PhD student of Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick. Her thesis is entitled From Dolls to Demons: Tracing the Evolution of the Gothic Female through a Selection of Traditional and Non-Traditional Gothic Texts, and focuses on the female figure of Gothic literature. Her Master’s research and dissertation focused on the contemporary Gothic hero of Anne Rice’s work, and conference papers have centred specifically on the Gothic female. Her work will be included in the forthcoming Universal Vampire Volume II, due for publication in September 2013.
