Profile
My research focuses on the relationship between gender and mobility in Victorian literature. I am particularly interested in the ways nineteenth-century women writers use space and movement to offer political and social critique. While much of my recent work focuses on the Brontë sisters, I plan to extend this line of inquiry to other female novelists of the period. I will also pursue a graduate minor in gender studies to further support my interest in gender and feminist theory.
