Mariana Baptista da Cruz

Hi! My name is Mariana, I am 22 years old and I live in Santarém. In 2016, I finished my B.A. in Languages, Literatures and Cultures (English and Portuguese Studies). I am currently working on my dissertation for my Master’s Degree in English and North-American Studies, which focuses on Robert Louis Stevenson’s South Seas fiction and its relation to nineteenth century colonial discourse. I take a special interest in Women’s Studies, Postcolonial theory and Gothic fiction of the Victorian Era. In addition to Literature, I am particularly passionate about Cinema.
