I am a PhD student studying social reform in nineteenth-century American literature and culture, especially in regards to gender and sexuality. I am interested in how novels of the period reflect the successes and failures of experimental utopian communities such as Brook Farm and the Oneida Community. Additional areas of interest include: women’s writing, sentimental fiction, gothic literature, cultural studies, and African American literature.
