Assistant Professor
I received my Ph.D from the University of Toronto and my BA from Bryn Mawr College, and I have most recently taught in the Foundation Year Programme at the University of King's College in Halifax. My primary research field is British Romanticism with a particular emphasis on poetry. My book manuscript, Romantic Poetry and the Poetics of Palliation, examines how Romantic literary writing engaged with beliefs about pain in 18th and 19th-century British medicine; my next project extends this interest in literary discomfort to a study of collective guilt in Romantic and Victorian lyric poetry.
