Sexual violence in literature: a cultural heritage?

ByLiam Murray Bell, Amanda Finelli, Marion Wynne-Davies

Liam currently combines research towards a PhD in Creative Writing with a position as Graduate Teaching Assistant within the English Department of the University of Surrey. His writing, both critical and creative, concerns discourses of violence and the role of women in the Northern Irish Troubles (1969 to the present) and he has published creative work in Wordriver, the literary journal of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, as well as in New Writing Scotland, issues 21 and 26. Critical work will appear shortly in Writing Urban Space, from Zero Books, and the journal New Writing: The International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing (Routledge).
