Welcome to my blogI am Francesca Blanch Serrat, a pre-doctoral student from Barcelona (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) with a BA and MA in English Studies and a minor in Gender Studies. My main interests are English and French Romanticism (the Byron-Keats-Shelley trio, Victor Hugo and Balzac, mainly), the long Eighteenth century, History, Feminism, Queer Studies, Literature and minor women writers.

You can find me writing about the above in The Wordsworth Trust or Madame Gilflurt (on Ada Lovelace, and on Charlotte Smith), and soon, in the BARS blog! You will also find me writing about fandom, comics, tv and film from a Gender critical perspective in Zena Magazine.

Here I will keep track of my research, scribble around about some of my favourite Romantic characters and stories, and write down whatever calls my attention from my readings.

If you wish to contact me, check this page.


Newstead Abbey and I.
