I am a Research Associate on the Leverhulme-funded ‘Sheridan Project’ (see: https://ahc.leeds.ac.uk/english/dir-record/research-projects/622/the-sheridan-project).
I obtained my PhD from Birkbeck, University of London in 2018. I have lectured at Birkbeck, Canterbury Christ Church University and City, University of London. I was awarded a Birkbeck / Wellcome Trust ISSF postdoctoral grant in 2018/19 for research on women’s participation in medicine in the early nineteenth century. I have held visiting fellowships at Chawton House Library and the Wordsworth Trust.
My research focuses on Romantic women’s manuscript practices, coterie productions of literature and travel writing. I am currently working on my first book, entitled Women Travellers and Transnational Networks: 1790-1840.
My work has recently appeared in European Romantic Review. I have a book chapter forthcoming in The Palgrave Handbook of Women and Science: History, Cultures and Practice since 1660.
In November 2015, I co-convened ‘Silence in the Archives: Censorship and Suppression in Women’s Life Writing in the Long Nineteenth Century’, an interdisciplinary conference at Wolfson College, Oxford. In 2018, I guest edited a special issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century based on the conference proceedings, which is available open access.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
