My primary research area is modern and contemporary women's writing, religion and spirituality and feminist theory.
I also have a teaching and research interest in anglophone children's literature (mid-nineteenth century to the present).
I would welcome enquires to supervise phd students in the following areas: modernism, late nineteenth and twentieth century women's writing, feminist theory, children's literature, life-writing, literature and religion.
I am currently accepting PhDs in English.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your research ideas further.
