in Fashioning Gothic bodies


This book has been a long time in the development, and as such it would be impossible to thank everyone who has inspired, encouraged, advised or otherwise played a part in its fashioning. There are several people whose contribution stands out, however, and whom I would particularly like to thank here. As my PhD supervisor, Chris Baldick read more drafts than he probably cares to count, and the value of his erudition, criticism and advice has been incalculable throughout. Special thanks are also due to Emma McEvoy, whose honest and perceptive criticism has also helped shape this work, and who has contributed an immeasurable amount to the finished manuscript by way of intellectual discussion and exchange. I would also especially like to thank David Punter and Aileen Ribeiro for providing encouragement and constructive criticism. Many others read all or part of the manuscript at different stages of its development or offered practical advice and support, and here I would like to thank Justine Baillie, Helen Carr, Debbie Challis, Harriet Darcel, the team at Manchester University Press, Alex Goody, Sam Greasley, Trevor Holmes, Sarah Martin, Helen Minchin, Flora Nuttgens, Eddie Robson, Andrew Teverson and Jason Whittaker. For assistance in locating picture ownership or obscure information and material, thanks to Flora Bathurst, Sheron Burton, Jane Desmarais, Kayte Ellis, Jonathan Evans and David Rose. I am grateful to the AHRB for enabling me to begin this project by awarding me funding for PhD research, to Goldsmiths College for contributing to conference expenses, and to Falmouth College of Arts Research Unit for providing word-processing software. Finally, last but not least, thanks to all the students at Goldsmiths College and Falmouth College of Arts who contributed to the lively ongoing debate of the material contained herein.
