About Dominique

Dominique Gracia is a researcher of Victorian literature and culture, and a writer of short fiction and other bits and bobs.

Dominique gained her PhD from the University of Exeter in 2017. She is especially interested in Victorian poetry, short fiction, and art. Authors of interest include Michael Field, Vernon Lee, Oscar Wilde, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Robert Browning, William Morris, and CL Pirkis. Dominique’s research broadly covers media studies and the relationships between writing and art, including adaptation and ekphrasis. She also works on detective fiction from the nineteenth century to the present day, including book reviews right here! You can find her academic publications in journals such as Word&Image and Victorian Poetry.

Dominique also writes short fiction and poetry, as well as reviews of detective fiction from her running book lists. She is fascinated by things that come up again and again, and run below the surface, from Greek mythology to cultural tropes that just won’t die, and the emotions that carry them along. She has various flash and short fiction pieces published in journals and around the internet, and she would love for you to read them! Dominique’s currently working on two short story collections: a collection of detective stories set in the 1890s, and a collection of stories about Greek goddesses in exile in the late-twentieth century.
