Postgraduate Students

I would welcome applications from potential graduate students interested in researching Romantic-era poetry and prose, especially the work of Thomas Moore, satire, popular fiction, and women’s writing.

Recent PhDs supervised to successful completion include: Katie Garner, Avalon Recovered: The Arthurian Legend in British Women’s Writing, 1775–1834, Jennifer Whitney, Playing with Dolls: Feminine Subjectivity and the Posthuman, Rachel Howard, Domesticating the Novel: Moral-Domestic Fiction, 1820-1834. .

Research Interests

My research to date has focused on British and Irish Romanticism, specifically the Irish poet and satirist Thomas Moore as well as the work of Mary Wollstonecraft.   I edited the first scholarly edition of The Satires of Thomas Moore and am currently working on a monograph on Thomas Moore’s literary legacy in the Romantic period. 

I am author of Mary Wollstonecraft (1997) and editor of the volume of essays Mary Wollstonecraft(2012).  I am co-author, with John Strachan, of Key Concepts in Romantic Literature (2010).
