Dr Jen Baker is currently a Teaching Fellow in C19th Literature at the University of Warwick. She defended her thesis which examined haunting depictions of the dead child in Anglo-American literatures and iconography of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as an embodiment of anxieties about the cults of childhood and death, at the University of Bristol in March 2017. Her Wider Research interests include the gothic 1800 – the present, medical humanities, monstrosity and childhood, the cult of child death, and movable and mechanical literary books. Wider interests include medical humanities, the writing, visualisation and wider cultures of death in the C19th, and the relationship between image and text. She is also Co-Chief Editor of the journal HARTS & Minds for postgraduates and Early Career Researchers of the humanities and arts.
