Latest book: After Darwin: Animals, Emotions, and the Mind   (reviewed in Psychology Today, Victorian Studies; The British Journal for the History of Science, Social History of Medicine, George Eliot Review, The British Society for Literature and Science; see George Levine, George Eliot Review). The Politics of Thomas Hardy: BiologyCharacter, Culture and Environment is forthcoming with Oxford University Press.

Richardson has published widely on nineteenth-century science, literature and culture, and has related research interests in digital humanities.  She holds a PhD and Victorian Studies MA from the University of London and a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford, and she welcomes PhD students in literature and science; on nineteenth-century prose and fiction, including Darwin, Eliot and Hardy; and on digital humanties (see Supervision).  A founding member of Exeter's Centre for Victorian Studies (CVS) in 2001, she has worked with colleagues to develop its richly interdisciplinary focus.  In the last seven years she has supervised  to successful completion ten PhD students, most of whom are now working in higher education or education, and she currently supervises six PhD students working on aspects of literature and science, Darwin, and Victorian literature, including Hardy Studies.   She was elected to the newly created (joint) post of Public Engagement Officer for University English (formerly CCUE) in April 2012, and relected to the University English executive committee for a third two-year term in April 2013.  In 2014 she gave a keynote addess at the Postgraduate Medical Humanities conference at Exeter and she has recently given invited talks at the University of Oxford Victorian Research Seminar and at the University of Oxford Department of Continuing Education, as well as a number of public lectures including for the Thomas Hardy Society in 2017 and at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and at Dorset County Museum.  She will be giving a keynote for the Hardy Society, in collaboration with the Universities of Exeter and Hull, in 2018.

Richardson is involved with various national and international projects within Hardy Studies, and she is working with local government and the cultural heritage sector on taking the study and enjoyment  of Hardy beyond the academic research community (see engagement and impact).  She co-organised the Hardy at Yale conference in 2011, and co-founded the International Postgraduate Symposium at the Hardy Conference and Festival in Dorchester.  She is also lead supervisor of  two AHRC-funded South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP) PhD  students in collaboration with Reading and in 2018 she will be lead supervisor on a SWW DTP Collaborative Doctoral Award, Hardy, Dorset and the wider world, in collaboration with Southampton, Dorset County Museum (DCM) and Dorset History Centre. She is also supervising an AHRC Research and Enterprise in Arts and Creative Technology (REACT) Collaborative Doctoral Award student with DCM, ‘Thomas Hardy and Heritage’ In 2012 she received Great Western Research funding, in collaboration with the National Trust, for a PhD CDA project on Hardy and Education which explored  the appeal and study of Hardy beyond the academic research community. Since 2012 she has organised a public lecture series in collaboration with the National Trust and Dorset County Museum.   

Richardson sits on the editorial board of the peer-reviewed Forum for World Literature Studies, sponsored by Shanghai Normal University, Purdue University and the Wuhan Institute for Humanities, the Hardy Review and the Thomas Hardy Journal, is literary editor of the Proceedings of the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society, and is a member of the Thomas Hardy Society  and the Thomas Hardy Association.  She has published a number of articles and chapters on Hardy and her forthcoming monograph Thomas Hardy and Biology: Character, Culture and Environment brings her expertise in Victorian science to her research on Hardy.  She is also editing a special issue of Literature Compass on Global Hardy, which forms part of the Global Circulation Project.    She has recently given invited research papers for the Centre for Medical History Seminar Series, Exeter, the  London Nineteenth-Century Studies Seminar and the Institute of English Studies Modernism Seminar, and public lectures for Wordquest, and at Dorset County Museum and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum. 

Richardson is especially interested in the exchange of ideas between science and culture, from Malthus and Darwin to the present, and in ideas, contemporary and Victorian, about the relations between nature and culture. Her earlier work confronted biologistic thinking and the search to explain the social in biological terms; she is now working on ways in which biology, separated from repressive social and political agendas, has the potential to offer a basis for social co-operation and mutuality.  She has published, most recently in Science, Literature, and Darwin’s Legacy, a special issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century, on ways in which postgenomic biology recapitulates Victorian insight.   In 2012 she was an invited speaker at the Southampton AHRC workshop 'Beyond the Gene: epigenetic science in 21st century culture' and at the British Academy Havelock Ellis colloquium (Wellcome Trust, London) .  Last year she gave a public lecture at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum on Darwin and the natural historians, and a talk  at a study weekend on the Victorians at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, and an invited paper at the Cambridge Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities conference on Darwin and Human Nature. In 2011 she gave an invited paper at the Cambridge History and Philosophy of Science Communicating Reproduction conference, which forms part of the Wellcome Trust Generation to Reproduction strategic award, and was also an invited respondent at a  workshop on literature and the history of science, technology and medicine in the long nineteenth century, at the University of Aberdeen; she also gave an invited paper on neo-Malthusianism for the Malthus Reading Group sponsored by King's College London.  In 2010 she presented a research paper at the British Society for Literature and Science Conference and in 2009 she gave a talk at the Darwin our Contemporary conference in Siegen, sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). Her work with schools includes Dear Mr Darwin, which she organised in collaboration with the Darwin Correspondence Project.

Richardson is co-author and editor of After Darwin: Animals, Emotions, and the Mind  (2013). This peer-reviewed volume brings together scholars from the disciplines of biology, the history of medicine, social history, the philosophy of science, English, and psychology, and is developed from her Wellcome Trust-sponsored symposium on Darwin, Medicine and the Humanities.  Richardson's Critical Quarterly Special Issue on Essentialism in Science and Culture was published  online and in print in 2011. She organised British Academy-funded cross-disciplinary workshops on essentialism and biology and culture in 2010 and 2011.  These were attended by biologists, historians of medicine, classicists, sociologists, literary and legal scholars and medical practitioners from the UK, USA and mainland Europe; details can be found at the project website.    

Richardson is a member of Exeter's Wellcome Trust-funded Centre for Medical History, on whose Advisory Board she sits, and the Centre for Southwest Writing; she is also a Research Associate of The ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society (Egenis) . She is a member of the Institute of English Studies, the British Association of Victorian Studies (BAVS), The North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA) and the UCSC Dickens Project.

Richardson's Love and Eugenics in the late Nineteenth Century: Rational Reproduction and the New Woman (Oxford University Press, 2003; paperback 2008), reveals the development of biologistic thinking and the shaping influence of eugenics in Victorian Britain (please see Angelique's CV for reviews). Richardson is the editor of a collection of American and British short stories, Women Who Did: Stories by Men and Women 1890-1914 (Penguin Classics, 2005), and co-editor of   Eugenics Old and New (2007), a special issue of New Formations ; Victorian Boundaries, a special issue of the Journal of Victorian Literature and Culture (2004); and The New Woman in Fiction and in Fact: Fin de Siècle Feminisms (Palgrave, 2001) (see Angelique's CV for reviews). Richardson is also on the Editorial Board of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century. She writes regularly for the TLS (see e.g.;, reviews, and reads manuscripts, for the leading international journals in nineteenth-century studies, including Victorian Studies, the Journal of Victorian Culture, and  the Journal of Victorian Literature and Culture, and in the history of science, including Isis, and for several publishers, including OUP.   She peer reviews grant proposals for the Wellcome Trust and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).  In the last 10 years she has given invited research papers at over 30 international and national conferences and seminars.
