I joined the Department of Humanities at Northumbria University in 2021, after working for 12 years at the University of Washington in Seattle.  My teaching focuses on literatures of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Anglophone Atlantic World, and I have a wide range of research interests including

  • Scottish and Irish literatures
  • Migration, diaspora, and settler colonialism
  • Women writers
  • Print culture
  • the Enlightenment and Romanticism
  • Critical race studies
  • The history of the novel
