Research Interests: I recently completed a Ph.D. from the Courtauld Institute of Art. My Ph.D. dissertation discusses the illustrations of Arthur Hughes and Frederick Sandys, two artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, in order to explore different approaches to identity and bodily representation in Victorian illustration from c. 1850–1915. Through an interdisciplinary approach that engages with Victorian art, literature, science, religion, and gender constructions, the dissertation considers the ways in which Hughes and Sandys seek to challenge the limits or boundaries of the body and explore the possibilities of the self. I have a broader interest in illustration and the graphic arts and recently curated an exhibition on the work of Arthur Rackham at the Columbia Rare Book & Manuscript Library in New York City. Additionally, I am currently working on a chapter on the illustrations of Jessie Marion King for a book on nineteenth-century women illustrators and cartoonists.
