About

My area of focus is 19th-century British literature, particularly the Victorian Gothic novel. I am interested in monstrosity, the body, folklore, and the impact of popular belief on fiction. My current research goals include:

  • understanding the development of superstition and magic into the Spiritualism and rationality of Victorian culture
  • investigating the literary impact of the relationship between England and Ireland in the 19th century (including the Irish Famine and resultant mass emigration)
