Scholarship

I'm a scholar of Romantic and Victorian literature, with additional interests in the history of poetry, Irish literature, and modernism. While a graduate student, I authored a doctoral dissertation called "Embodied Pleasure and Radical Aesthetics in Nineteenth-Century Poetry." I also published two articles: "Swinburne, Impressionistic Formalism, and the Afterlife of Victorian Poetic Theory" (in Victorian Poetry), and "Conspiring with Keats: Toward a Poetics of Breathing" (in European Romantic Review).

I also have an ongoing passion for teaching. I've recently taught university courses on the history of poetry in English from Wordsworth to the present, as well as on Dante, Chaucer, and the myths of the quest and dream vision in medieval literature.
