Kit Bauserman (they/them) is a second-year M.A./Ph.D. Student in American Studies at the College of William & Mary. They specialize in horror and gothic fiction. Their research explores how horror and the gothic’s intersections with folklore and digital media highlight non-traditional forms of haunting and spectrality, such as haunted landscapes.
