My disciplines and areas of professional expertise include…

  • British literature, women's writing, the history of the book

Current work

I teach courses primarily on British literature and write about eighteenth-century literature, the history of the book, women's writing, graduate education, and higher education more generally.



I work on the History of the Book and the relationship of a public culture of education to developments in the book trade. I am interested particularly in the overlap of communications technologies and how the means of production affects what we consider to be literature.

I am also interested in higher education; from general education to the humanities to doctoral education.
