Danni Sterricks is an MRes Humanities graduate from the University of Stirling. Her research aims to examine psychological attitudes to illness within Jane Austen’s texts. Her interests include Austen, psychology, mimetic characters, print culture, and perusing old books that have such fascinating bindings she never gets around to studying the text block.
Katharina Pruente is a PhD student at Stirling who works on the social networks of Archibald Campbell, fifth earl of Argyll (1558-1573). Her wider research interests include early modern European culture, diplomacy, and the impact of friendship on politics. In her free time, she enjoys kayaking, tea with freshly baked cinnamon rolls, and digging up evidence on dead people in dusty archives.

Ilse Hogewerf is an MRes Humanities student at the University of Stirling, researching horror video games in relation to experience, embodiment, and the Gothic imagination. When she’s not at the Press or playing video games, she is most likely watching someone else playing video games or playing handball!
