I am currently supervising or co-supervising several doctoral projects on both Romantic and Victorian topics. I am happy to consider enquiries from potential doctoral students on topics relating to any aspect of nineteenth-century literature and culture, including, but not limited to my current and past research interests. I am part:

  • Dickens, Carlyle, Wordsworth, Gaskell, Richard Jefferies, George Borrow, Thomas Hardy
  • Death, elegy, burial and sanitary reform
  • Victorian genre fiction; nature writing; the Victorian city
  • Transport by train, coach, boat or foot;
  • Victorian and Romantic tourism and its literature

Please do contact me atĀ if you would like an informal discussion about your ideas for an MPhil or PhD.
