Research Interests: My current research interest is Englishness, especially English attachment to the countryside in the nineteenth to early twentieth century. So the Country House and the cottages are the two main icons in my interest. I am pursuing rural representations like the country house and the cottages in literary works, paintings, periodicals and so on. The writers and painters I am interested in are Thomas Hardy, Richard Jefferies, E.M.Forster, Mary Webb, Edward Thomas, George Sturt, Flora Thompson, Helen Allingham, Myles Birket Foster and other Victorian and Edwardian writers and painters.
