Marta Correia is currently attending a Ph.D course in Feminist Studies at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Porto. She holds an M.A. degree in Women’s Studies. Her main interests in research include Virginia Woolf and her facet as a feminist, women’s activist groups, female writers who focus on the issues of oppression and war, and also food in times of armed conflict through the eyes of women writers. At the moment, she is researching the work of Slavenka Drakulić, a Croatian author who has dedicated some of her writings to the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Marta has participated in a number of projects at the University of Porto coordinated by CETAPS (the Centre for English, Translation and Anglo-Portuguese Studies) and ILC-ML (Instituto de Literatura Comparada Margarida Losa), and several international conferences in Portugal and abroad, some of which she helped organise.
