My research focuses on the interrelation between sexual sciences and European (especially German-language and British) literature, visual culture and performance in the late 19th and early 20th century. My most recent publications include an Open Access article on the relationship between sexology and film (2018), published in the journal Gender and History, and the co-edited volume Biological Discourses: The Language of Science and Literature Around 1900 (2017).

I am based in the English Department and at the Centre for Medical History. I am also a member of the Wellcome Trust-funded Rethinking Sexology project. I co-convene the Medical History and Humanities seminar series with Dr Sarah Jones. I also co-founded and co-convene the Interdisciplinary Animal Studies Theory Reading Group with Dr Rich Gorman.


Key interests:

  • Gender, transgender and sexuality studies
  • Queer and literary theory
  • Medical humanities
  • Literature and science studies
  • Life writing, diary and autobiography
  • Film studies (especially films circulated beyond the commercial movie theater)
  • Human-Animal studies
