Research supervision

I would welcome applications from students who would like to work on Victorian literature and visual or material culture in the nineteenth century, or women's writing in all its forms, particularly the work of Margaret Oliphant, Charlotte Yonge, Elizabeth Gaskell, and the Brontes. I would also be interested in supervising projects on  women and work, on Victorian literature's interactions with art, craft, design history or aesthetics more generally, or on Victorian 'things' as they relates to architecture and the built enviroment, the decorative arts, or the body and dress.
