My research examines women’s manuscript circulation, travel writing and engagement with Enlightenment bodies of knowledge in the Romantic period. I was awarded a Birkbeck / Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Postdoctoral Grant for postdoctoral research on women’s participation in medicine in the early nineteenth century through the creation and exchange of specialised manuscripts, practical medical training and the publication of texts of domestic medicine. I was a Chawton House Library Visiting Fellow in 2016 and a 2014 recipient of the British Association for Romantic Studies Stephen Copley Postgraduate Bursary. In November 2015, I co-convened ‘Silence in the Archives: Censorship and Suppression in Women’s Life Writing in the Long Nineteenth Century’, an interdisciplinary conference at Wolfson College, Oxford. In 2018, edited a special issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century based on the conference proceedings, which is available via open access.
