Because eighteenth- and nineteenth-century England was the site of the first industrial revolution and the center of a vast global empire, I am fascinated with the literature it produced and the cultural work performed by that literature. I’m particularly interested in the ways that gender and class were constructed in this intriguing period.  Besides the published research listed above, I’ve also taught classes or presented papers on Jane Austen, Sarah Scott, Hannah More, Charles Dickens, the Brontës, Victorian mental science, the sensation novel, Anglo-Indian and Indian literature, and narrative theory. I also routinely teach the Department’s Introduction to Literary Theory and Criticism course.
