Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Nottingham
Dr Jonathan Memel is Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the AHRC-funded project Florence Nightingale Comes Home for 2020. Jonathan’s research focuses on the regional context of nineteenth-century writing. He is interested in how Victorian texts (literary, education, health) were influenced by new understandings and experiences of place. His National Trust/Great Western Research-funded PhD, awarded at the University of Exeter in 2016, drew on Thomas Hardy’s writing to show how Victorian education transformed regional, gender, and class identities.
Jonathan has previously worked on COVE as a Research Assistant and led Hardy and Clothing as an AHRC-funded Cultural Engagement Fellow.
Jonathan is Editor of the BAVS Newsletter.
