Research Interests

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. Within literary theory, I am especially versed in the thought of Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida, and Gilles Deleuze.

I am the author of Sexual Enjoyment in British Romanticism (McGill-Queen's UP 2015) and Fracture Feminism: The Politics of Impossible Time in British Romanticism (SUNY Press 2021). I co-edited Lacan and Romanticism (SUNY Press 2019), edited vol. 2 of Women and War (Routledge 2020), and am co-Editor of the journal Romanticism on the Net. 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. I am currently serving as Undergraduate Program Director and Associate Head for the Department of English.
