Congratulations Daisy

Congratulations to OGOM’s Daisy Butcher who has submitted her PhD thesis today: ‘Monsters of (In)fertility: The Plant-Woman and the Female Mummy in Victorian Gothic Literature’. Daisy has been a joy to supervise & a huge asset to OGOM. She has been affiliated to the project for the last seven years on a funded bursary from the University of Hertfordshire. Some of you will know of Daisy from her Evil Roots collection in the Tales of the Weird Series published by the British Library. We can’t wait to see what you do next Daisy #botanicalgothic. We’re looking forward to working with you on some new projects including our next conference Bodies Of Water: Mermaids, Selkies and other Marine and Freshwater Hybrids.

The Flowers Personified by J. J. Grandville, from Les Fleurs Animées translated by N. Cleaveland, Esq. (New York, 1847)
