Tatiana Fajardo completed her MLitt in the Gothic Imagination at the University of Stirling (Scotland), writing her dissertation on the employment of art and science in Patrick McGrath’s novels. She began a blog in which she discusses her literary, cinematic and artistic interests in 2017. Passionate about Gothic literature, her blog post on Dracula’s ‘‘Bloofer Lady’’ was published by Sheffield University. Some of her essays have been translated into Swedish and published by Rickard Berghorn, both on his online Weird Webzine and in his printed books Studier I vart (2018) and Två fantasistycken (2018). These include her analyses of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (1982), Ingmar Bergman’s Hour of the Wolf (1968), and Victor Sjöström’s The Phantom Carriage (1921). She presented her study of the employment of Romantic poets in the TV series Penny Dreadful (2014-2016) at the IGA conference in Manchester in August 2018. Recently, her article ‘‘The Bloodlust of Elizabeth Báthory: From the Brothers Grimm to American Horror Story’’ was published by Luna Press Publishing (2019).
Tatiana will be starting a PhD in Comparative Literature focused on Patrick McGrath’s narratives in late 2019. She combines her work as a researcher with her job as an English teacher in Spain. Follow her at http://tatianafajardodomench.blogspot.com.es/ and on Twitter @Tatiana19796
