Writing Fiction: Invisibility and Hybridity
My research revolves around the idea of hybridity as applied to literature. I see the text as a melting pot in which genres, cultures, and identities can merge. I am interested in the way the act of writing can create junctures. My creative process involves merging factual and alternative historical realities of Britain, as well as revealing and conjuring links between peoples, settings, and cultures inside the text. My current focus is on the juncture points in which gothic, steampunk, and fantasy meet, as well as the cultural hybridity of Latin-Americans living in Great Britain.
