About— CV

I am an assistant professor of English and faculty member in the Irish Studies program at Villanova University. My research examines theories of history, education, and empire in the context of nineteenth-century English and Irish literature. I am currently completing a book manuscript, “Novel Institutions: Realism, Anachronism, and the Nineteenth-Century Novel” that argues that realism’s historicity emerges from its attempts to conceal it as it studies the limits of institutionality in nineteenth-century English and Irish realist novels.
