Research Interests: Tabitha Sparks specializes in the Victorian novel: its development, cultural influence and generic complexity. She also works on feminist narratology and medicine in Victorian culture (and literature more broadly). She is a member of Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies International (Durham), NAVSA, and was a visiting scholar at Pembroke College, Cambridge (2017-2018). At McGill, she currently works as Associate Dean of Arts, Research and Graduate Studies and is a member of the Department of English and an Associate Member of the Social Studies of Medicine program.

Tabitha's publications include The Doctor in the Victorian Novel (2009), Victorian Medicine and Popular Culture (co-edited with Louise Penner, 2015), the Broadview edition of Margaret Harkness's A City Girl (2018), as well as numerous articles and book chapters. She welcomes queries from prospective graduate students and collaborators in general.
