NAME: Charlotte Elizabeth Rogers

DATE OF BIRTH: 8th August 1988

PLACE OF BIRTH: Bridgend, Wales


EDUCATION: University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Fife

MA (Hons) Classical Studies and English (2:1)

Dissertation: Postnormality: the posthuman mind and identity in William Gibson's Sprawl trilogy, in which I considered a cycle of identity, from human to posthuman, and the possibility of two identities existing simultaneously, in parallel with two realities. In addressing issues of both science fiction and contemporary fiction such as the human and the other, reality vs. unreality and the necessary evolution of terms such as 'normality' to allow for an ever-evolving society, I developed skills such as close analysis of both fiction and non-fiction texts, independent and extensive research to produce an original and structured 10,000-word dissertation, and undertook limited but productive meetings with a supervisor in which I was able to concisely discuss my plans for the project, including outlining my argument and discussing the progress of the final piece. This project also gave me the opportunity to engage in a lengthy process of editing, which allowed me to develop my ability to work with longer pieces of writing and further my experience with self-motivated deadlines and alterations.
