Annelise Edwards-Daem

Annelise Edwards-Daem is a Midlands4Cities-funded PhD candidate at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). Her project examines women writers who challenge perceptions of gendered subjectivity by engaging with the figure of the doll, with a specific focus on gender studies, feminism, the Gothic and posthumanism. She has a publication in Taylor and Francis Online’s Journal, Women’s Writing, and she is also a member of the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association, Feminist Studies Association, International Gothic Association and the Periodicals and Print Culture Research Group at NTU. Though Annelise’s project is not critical-creative, she writes poetry in her spare time and has poetry publications in The Hellebore Review, Re-side, All Female Menu, Teen Belle and Crepe and Penn.
