CV

As a researcher, teacher, and editor, I am interested in everything Victorian. I recently published the Routledge Handbook to Nineteenth-Century British Periodicals and Newspapers (co-edited with Andrew King and John Morton), which received the 2017 Colby Prize. Other recent books include Literary Celebrity, Gender, and Victorian Authorship, 1850–1914 (U Delaware P, 2011) and First-Person Anonymous: Women Writers and Victorian Print Media, 1830-70 (Ashgate, 2004). I serve as editor of Victorian Periodicals Review, an international scholarly journal dedicated to research on the Victorian press. I am also co-editor of a forthcoming edited collection, Researching the Nineteenth-Century Periodical Press: Case Studies (Routledge, 2017). My other current research and teaching interests include Victorian women writers, Victorian drama, working-class poetry, the Brontës, Harriet Martineau, Charles Dickens, detective fiction, Gothic novels, and professional editing.
