My doctoral thesis examines the ongoing contemporary desire to revise the nineteenth century in present-day fiction through the representation of Victorian clothing, costume and dress. Specifically, I am interested in the appropriation of the period’s materiality via the sartorial, an apt trope - I argue - with which to literally re-fashion the Victorian past for contemporary consumption.
In addition, I teach part-time in the Centre for Studies in Literature and am an editorial assistant for the online, academic journal 'Victoriographies'.
