Amy Palko completed her MLitt in the Gothic Imagination in 2004 at the University of Stirling in Scotland, where she has now embarked upon her Phd. The main focus of her research is the fictive representation of the material text in the work of Stephen King, looking particularly at the way in which it acts as a locus for struggles between high and low, popular and serious, heteronomy and autonomy. Last year she received funding from the Carnegie Trust to carry out research at the Stephen King archive at the University of Maine’s Raymond Fogler library. She has presented papers on ‘The Marriage of Popular and Serious in the work of Stephen King’ and ‘The Gothic Pedestrian: An analysis of the role of Steerpike in Mervyn Peake’s Titus Groan and Gormenghast’, and she recently co-organised the conference Fashioning Fiction at the University of Stirling. Her research interests are book history, twentieth-century literature, popular culture, modernism and nineteenth-century American literature.
