19th century English novel, feminism
Main areas of interest consist of ‘modern British novel’ and ‘feminist discourse’ in their broad senses. Drawing on long-held questions about the nexus between theory and literature, genre and gender, subjectivity and ethics, sexuality and textuality, and history and politics, the research focused on the nineteenth-century British women writers’ contribution to the formation and evolution of the genre of domestic novel, which could be elaborated under the controversial yet resilient critical rubric of ‘feminine writing.’
Specific authors and topics that have been addressed include Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, the marriage plot, domestic ideology, the Gothic, vampire narrative, the family romance, kinship, eroticism, postfeminism, film theory, and popular culture.
