Amy Jane Vosper
Amy Jane Vosper is a Ph.D. candidate at Trent University. Graduating with both a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Studies, Vosper began her M.A. in Film Studies at Carleton University with the intention of combining empirical and theoretical approaches to the study of spectatorship and the social construction of fear. Vosper is a regular academic guest-lecturer, a frequent contributor to Ottawa Horror and she has sat on panel discussions of horror, academia, gender and genre. She is currently co-authoring a book entitled, Encyclopedia Monstrosica: Representations of Monstrosity in Popular Culture. Her research has origins in her own experiences of fan culture and the under-representation of female horror fans. Currently, her work is focusing on female filmmakers and the independent, Canadian film industry.
