I completed my BA, Masters and doctoral research in English Literature at Newcastle University. My PhD investigated the relationship between national identity and the man of feeling in Romantic Literature. Both during and after my PhD I worked in a range of academic, administrative and engagement roles before coming to QMUL as a project manager on "Living with Feeling".
I have long standing research interests in constructions of gender, especially masculinities, and concepts of nation and national identities. My current research project investigates literary representations of graves and burial practices during the Napoleonic Wars.
