Senior Lecturer


My PhD thesis on conceptions of sovereignty and domesticity in interwar women’s writing explored the relationships between popular low- or middlebrow fiction and modernist fiction. I have published work on the popular romance writer E.M. Hull. My research on this project also takes me into the territory of travel writing. Additional research interests include ecofeminism and modernism as well as the representation of women’s physical education in interwar literature. In 2010 I was awarded a Dissertation Research Fellowship at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas for work on the archives of Marie Belloc Lowndes. I have also conducted AHRC funded research in Tasmania and was visiting researcher at ANU in Canberra in the summer of 2009.
