Research

research overview

  • My interests center on British Literature, especially of the eighteenth century. I am most interested in the historical contexts of literature, and I bring that perspective to bear in all my scholarship and teaching. I am currently at work on a book tentatively titled 'Strange Case of Elizabeth Canning,' which examines the most famous criminal case of the eighteenth century in both literary and historical (especially legal) ways.
