Associate Professor of Literary and Cultural Studies, English
My research has focused on the British Romantic and Victorian periods, print history, and the sociology of culture. I am especially interested in the emergence of new fields of knowledge in the early nineteenth century and have recently completed a book on this topic, Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences: Knowledge and Cultural Institutions in the Romantic Age (Cambridge University Press, 2013). I am also working on the historical relationship of so-called "new" and "old" media in a project on book history, the long nineteenth century, and the current debates around new media and digital humanities. I have edited A Concise Companion to the Romantic Age for Blackwell and contributed to a wide range of collections and reference books. I am also author of The Making of English Reading Audiences 1790-1832 and related essays on Romantic-age cultural and media history.
