Research Interests: My PhD explores how the human-animal boundary was staged and experienced within Victorian freakshows, examining acts such as Julia Pastrana, Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy and Joseph Merrick the Elephant Man. I am interested in Victorian understandings of species and how these relate to theatre and performance studies.
