I came to Manchester in January 2006 from the University of Rochester (US), where I was Associate Professor of English; before that, I was a Lecturer in the program in Literature and the Arts at Stanford University . I received my PhD in Comparative Literature (focusing on English, French, and Italian) from UCLA.

Supervision areas:

I am particularly interested in supervising research projects on eighteenth-century literature (including poetry and theatre as well as the novel and other prose genres), the history of the novel, narrative theory and genre studies, censorship and obscenity, the history of sexuality and gender, and representations of sexuality in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Current teaching:


My courses at Manchester include  MA seminars on 'The Eighteenth-Century Novel: Masculinity, Femininity, and Anxiety', and 'Theory of the Novel', and a third year course on 'Crime and the Law in Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Literature'. I  also teach on the second-year 'Forms of Poetry' course, and have taught courses on the Victorian novel and eighteenth-century literature.
