Dr Helen Stoddart is a Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Glasgow. Her research interests lie primarily in twentieth- and twenty-first century literature, film and culture, with a particular focus on questions of gender and the body. This has produced a range of publications on subjects such as Federico Fellini, Isak Dinesen, tattoos, Angela Carter, film authorship theory, A.L. Kennedy, ghost stories, Charles Dickens, and Wim Wenders. Her monograph, Rings of Desire: Circus History and Representation (2000) is part of an ongoing interest in the history and representation of circus bodies, an interest that is picked up in her next book, the Routledge Guide to Angela Carter's Nights at the Circus (2007).
