Overview

I joined the School of English in 2013, having previously taught at the University of Glasgow. My first monograph, British Romanticism and the Reception of Italian Old Master Art, 1793-1840 (Ashgate, 2014), was short-listed for the 2015 British Association of Romantic Studies First Book Prize. My current project, Social Media: Women, Pictures and Print, 1750-1830, examines the ways in which women’s visual lives informed eighteenth-century and Romantic literature and print culture.

 

Research

  • Anglo-Italian relationships in the long nineteenth century
