I am at the beginning a new project that will examine female academics who are also athletes. I intend to study women from both the 21st and 19th centuries. I am interested in probing the cultural work done by these women and the response to them. My 19th century focus will be on British women; the 21st century focus could be global. My first book POSTAL PLOTS IN BRITISH FICTION 1840-1898: READDRESSING CORRESPONDENCE IN VICTORIAN CULTURE is due out from Palgrave, July 2013.
I’m interested in Latina/o/x literatures and cultures and American literatures from the 19th to the 21st centuries.
