Professional description

My main areas of expertise are British Romanticism and literary theory, either charmingly blended together or taken separately. Within Romanticism, I have particular interests in women's writing, the history of feminism, and the history of sexuality (and Jane Austen of course!). Within theory, I am especially interested in Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, and associated thinkers. I am part of the core editorial team of the journal Romanticism on the Net.

My first book was called Sexual Enjoyment in British Romanticism (McGill-Queen's UP, 2015). Daniela Garofalo and I then edited Lacan and Romanticism (SUNY P, 2019), and I edited British Women and War, 1660-1835 (Routledge, 2020). A new book, Fracture Feminism: The Politics of Impossible Time in British Romanticism, is forthcoming from SUNY Press. There is a CV available on this page with a full listing of publications and talks.

I am interested in working with graduate and undergraduate students in the areas of British Romanticism, eighteenth or nineteenth-century British Literature, any aspect of poststructuralist theory, psychoanalytic theory, deconstruction, and/or the history of feminism.
