My current research project focuses on women’s bodies in nineteenth-century American sensational texts, especially trial reports. General research interests include nineteenth-century women authors, especially Elizabeth Stoddard, Julia Ward Howe, and Lydia Maria Child; slavery and literature; intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality; and disability studies.
