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: Sociability and Visual Print Culture in an analog age, 1750-1840, focuses on a variety of texts, genres, textual spaces and circulation practices, while engaging with wider issues such as gender roles, taste and sociability.
I am particularly interested in supervising postgraduate research on Romantic-period visual culture and any aspect of the cultural relationship between Britain and Italy in the long nineteenth century.
