Cultural Currents 1870-1930
Our research group has a wealth of expertise in nineteenth and twentieth-century literature and culture, considering transitions and continuities between the 'Victorian' to the 'modern'. We have particular interests in the Gothic, sensation and Weird fiction, the fin-de-siècle and modernism.
Our research explores the intersection of English, Humanities, Health, Healthcare, and Wellbeing. We have particular interests in mental health in the nineteenth century, ageing and the contemporary, early modern dietary culture, and early modern women’s health, pregnancy, and childbirth.
