About Me

I am a PhD Researcher based in the Schools of English and History at the University of Leeds. My research-council funded project, ‘Reading and Writing the Northern Star, 1837-1848,’ takes a literary approach to examining the way the leading newspaper of the Chartist movement was employed as a tool for communication and community-building.

My research expertise spans Britain in the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth. I am particularly interested in the culture of print and periodicals in Victorian Britain, politics and protest, and fashion and material culture of the long nineteenth century.

In addition to my PhD, I have taught an introductory poetry module for undergraduates at the University of Leeds. At present I am the research assistant for the AHRC-funded Letterpress Project, based at the School of English at the University of Leeds.
