Research Interests:
My overriding research interest is the way in which religion and culture intersect in the nineteenth century and into the twentieth. Linked to this is an interest in the ways in which this informed and frequently hampered personality development. Gender and mental health issues are key for me. My interest involves me in taking detailed account of the writing and literature of the period with a primary but not exclusive focus on the family of Archbishop Edward Benson.
