Other Academic Interests: 

Though I have a strong investment in ‘the literary’, I am particularly interested in the history of emotion and in intellectual history more generally. My research focuses on 18th and 19th century poetry and prose, while particular areas of interest include moral philosophy; sentimentality; pleasure; comedy; Nonsense literature and the intersections between literature and psychoanalysis.
