Marie Walz is Junior Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Comparative Gender Studies. She specialises in cross-period comparative studies and feminist rewritings of medieval and early modern literature, with a focus on allegory, fairy tales, fantasy, and speculative fiction. Her PhD thesis, entitled "Reading Spells Backwards: Allegories of Violence and Love in Edmund Spenser’s and Angela Carter’s Fairy-Tale and Speculative Fiction", offers a comparative study between Edmund Spenser's allegorical poem and Angela Carter's fairy-tale rewritings and speculative novels. Her post-doc project will center on contemporary feminist authors of fairy tales, fantasy, and speculative fiction, including Angela Carter, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Neil Gaiman.
