Research Interests:
My research generally addresses the Victorian illustrated press as a discursive and ideological construct and, over the past few years, has mainly focused on aestheticized renderings of working-class life in The Illustrated London News and The Graphic.

My current project concerns the Punch archive at the British Library, and in particular the Bradbury & Evans financial papers (ledgers and manuscripts).
