Research supervision

I currently supervise PhD students working on a range of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century subjects. I also supervise students working on performance by practice PhDs in creative non-fiction, and students working on critical projects concerned with archives and material culture. I would be happy to discuss research proposals on any relevant subject related to my research interests. Current projects include:


As first or co-supervisor, with colleagues based elsewhere in the AHRC DTP:

Helena Drysdale, State of Emergency: a journey around contemporary Greece in the footsteps of George Bowen (1821 – 1899), Victorian traveller, writer and statesman (creative  non-fiction).

Lucy Whitehead, The Lives of Charles Dickens: A Metabiography 1870-present

As second supervisor:

Heather Hind, Hairwork in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture (AHRC DTP)

Asma Char, An Investigation into the Idea of the Female Self-Concept as Represented in the Victorian New Woman Novel

Tamara Sharp, The High Lonesome (creative writing)

Marine Furet, Angela Carter’s Toyshop: A Materialist Investigation of Angela Carter’s Representation of Things (AHRC DTP)
