Victoria Margree

Dr Victoria Margree is Principal Lecturer in the Humanities at the University of Brighton. She is interested in radical politics, feminism, philosophy and literature - especially in women's writing and in the fiction of the late-Victorian period and early 20th century. She is co-editor of an essay collection on fin de siecle popular fiction writer, Richard Marsh (Manchester University Press, 2018) and author of a study of the second wave radical feminist, Shulamith Firestone (Zero Books, 2018). Margree is co-founder of the Short Story Network, a research network dedicated to the short fiction of the long 19th century. She is currently completing a monograph entitled 'British Women's Short Supernatural Fiction, 1860-1930: Our Own Ghostliness'. This explores how the ghost story functioned as a public forum for negotiating women's experiences in rapidly changing social conditions, looking at stories by Margaret Oliphant, Charlotte Riddell, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Edith Nesbit, Alice Perrin, Eleanor Scott and Violet Hunt.
