Specialization

I specialize in the history of the novel, specifically during the Romantic period (1790-1830), and am writing a book on the intersection of literary history and nineteenth-century medicine. I am most interested in reading novelists outside of their generic boxes. I’ve published essays and book reviews in _Women’s Writing_, _Nineteenth-Century Literary Studies_, and _Pedagogy_ and co-edited “Prospecting Romanticism” a special issue of Romantic Pedagogy Commons. I also write about race and diversity in higher education and am the editor of Written/Unwritten: Tenure and Race in the Humanities (under consideration). Recent publications include an essay on British abolitionist prose for the new _Encyclopedia of Romantic Literature_. Essays and books review forthcoming in _Keats-Shelley Journal_, _Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society_, and _PMLA_.

I teach British Romanticism, Novel to 1900, Pursuits of English, and Art of Fiction along with special topics courses and senior seminars.
