Postgraduate supervision

I am happy to supervise PhD students working in any area of Victorian literature and culture.


Areas of Interest

Victorian literature and culture, specifically fiction, theatre, women’s writing and history, actresses, historiography, and Shakespeare’s Victorian after-life. I am currently completing a book on 1859, with particular attention to George Eliot’s life and work in that year, and am one of the General Editors for a new Cambridge University Press series on Re-Reading the Nineteenth Century.
