Biography

Sarah Jessica Darley is undertaking a PhD in Literature, exploring contemporary fairy tale literature in the wake of Angela Carter. The provisional title for her research is: ‘Like the Wild Beasts, She Lives Without a Future’: The Afterlives of Angela Carter in Contemporary Fairy Tale Literature. Within the scope of her thesis, Sarah hopes to apply Carter's own 'demythologising' methodology to both her authorial-myth and the reception of Carter's fairy tale ouevre, allowing for new critical avenues to occur.

Sarah is also an Associate Tutor on the first year undergraduate module Reading Now for the 22/23 LDC cohort.

Sarah is currently preparing a chapter for the upcoming volume: POWERS OF POP: Cross-Cultural Influences Between Japanese and American Pop Cultures, ed. Dr. Kendra Nicole Sheehan and Matthew Hodge M.F.A.. Her contribution will survey the complex cultural dialogue between Euro-American fairy tales and the mahō shōjo genre of Japanese media.
