Colleen McDonell

As an MA Literatures of Modernity student at Ryerson University, Colleen is interested in exploring 19th century folk and fairy tales, women’s writings, motherhood, and children’s literature. She has been involved in research projects on late-Victorian horror Arthur Machen and is currently working for The Yellow Nineties Online. Her Major Research Project is on the female servant in the Victorian ghost story. Colleen’s favourite fin-de-siècle periodical is The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal.
