Personal profile

Research interests

I work on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British and American literature, especially novels and nonfiction prose. More broadly, I am interested in Victorian liberalism, nineteenth-century feminisms, the history of higher education, and transatlantic approaches to literary study.

My website is here.

My book, American Snobs: Transatlantic Novelists, Liberal Culture, and the Genteel Tradition, is coming out with Edinburgh University Press in early 2021.
