I specialize in the history of the novel, specifically during the Romantic period (1790-1830), am writing a book on the intersections of literary history and nineteenth-century medical discourse, and reading for a book on British abolitionist literature and genre. I also write about race and diversity in higher education. I co-edited “Prospecting Romanticism” a special issue of Romantic Pedagogy Commons and am the editor of Written/Unwritten: Diversity and the Hidden Truths of Tenure (http://uncpress.unc.edu/browse/book_detail?title_id=3816). I have published essays and book reviews in Women’s Writing, Pedagogy, the Keats-Shelley Journal, Signs: A Journal of Women in Culture and Society, and PMLA.
British Romanticism (poetry and fiction), the history of the novel, abolitionist British literature, and women's writing.
