Dr Rhiannon Marks
BA MSt PhD
Lecturer and Admissions Tutor
My main Research interests include:
*Contemporary literature (prose and poetry)
*Literary and Critical Theory
I graduated in Welsh from Abersytwyth University before following a Masters in Women's Studies from Jesus College, Oxford. I completed a PhD in Aberystwyth on Menna Elfyn's work focusing on 'epistolary criticism' and in 2013 published a volume entitled 'Pe gallwn, mi luniwn lythyr': golwg ar waith Menna Elfyn. In my free time I enjoy creative writing and won the Crown in the Urdd National Eisteddfod in 2007. Until recently I was co-editor of the magazine Tu Chwith.

◦Professional and Academic Research
My interest in women's literature continues to grow and as a result of a Santander funded research trip to Patagonia during the Summer of 2013, I am currently researching into the the work of Patagonian poet, Irma Hughes de Jones.
I also intend to combine my interest in literary theory and contemporary literature in a study on the development of post-modern short stories in Welsh.
I would welcome applications from research students who wish to pursue the following research fields:
◦Contemporary literature (prose and poetry)
◦Literary and Critical Theory
◦Work which experiments with 'fact' and 'fiction'
