I study transatlantic literary and intellectual history. My research focuses on conversations about education, citizenship, and democracy in the US and Britain during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. I'm especially interested in the histories of higher education, whiteness, and feminism.
I'm a Lecturer in English at the University of Bristol. Before coming to Bristol, I earned my Ph.D. at Yale and held postdoctoral teaching positions at Princeton and Oxford.
My book American Snobs: Transatlantic Novelists, Liberal Culture, and the Genteel Tradition has recently come out with Edinburgh University Press.
