Research Biography

My research primarily revoles around the literature and culture of the British long eighteenth century. This includes fictional, poetic and dramatic responses to death and suicide, cultures of sensibility, and the Gothic.

I'm currently writing a monograph on Jane Austen and Vampires (Palgrave), and co-editing a collection of essays on Graveyard Gothic (Manchester UP). I’m also working towards a monograph examining the the connection between eighteenth-century senisbility and suicide, with a particular focus on representation, emotion, and ethics.

I am also the author of Graveyard Poetry: Religion, Aesthetics and the Mid-Eighteenth-Century Poetic Condition (Ashgate, 2013), the first long study of this devotional, proto-Gothic and pre-Romantic poetic mode.
