An Assistant Professor in the Teaching Stream, Natalie Neill (Ph.D., English, York; M.A., Film Studies, Carleton) specializes in undergraduate teaching and learning (especially the first-year experience) and nineteenth-century literature. Her period-specific research interests include the Gothic, satire and parody, women's authorship, and transmedia adaptation. She has published articles and book chapters on gothic parodies, adaptations of Romantic and Victorian novels, and nineteenth-century horror novels, among other topics. She has also edited two Romantic-period comic Gothic novels—The Hero and Love and Horror—for Valancourt Books. She is currently working on an edited collection on Gothic Mash-Ups (Lexington Books) and an edition of Mary Charlton's Rosella, or Modern Occurrences (1799) (Routledge).
