I specialize in 18th-century and romantic-era British transatlantic literature and culture. My academic interests include the history of emotion, taste, travel, early museum studies, advice literature, the periodical essay, women writers, life writing and the French Enlightenment in England. My dissertation focuses on asymmetrical friendship in late-enlightenment texts of sociability.
