Lecturer in English / Director of Drama, Mount Allison University

I am a Lecturer in English and Director of Drama at Mount Allison University in Canada. My research areas include adaptation studies, 19th century literature, history and culture, medical humanities (mental health), gender, neo-Victorianism, film and television studies, biography and true crime. I have published in peer-reviewed journals, including Taylor & Francis’s Bronte Studies, Oxford UP’s Adaptation, and Edinburgh University Press's Romanticism. I have also contributed a chapter on masculinity in period drama in I.B. Tauris’s edited collection Conflicting Masculinities: Men in Television Period Drama (2018). I also have a forthcoming chapter co-written with Dr Claire O’Callaghan in the forthcoming edited collection Diagnosing History: Medicine in Costume Drama (2020). I was guest editor of the special issue of Bronte Studies: Emily Bronte, A Peculiar Music (April 2020). I am currently writing a monograph entitled Screening Bronte Men: From Hollywood’s Golden Age to the Dark Heritage Film as well as co-edited a proposed edited collection with Dr Claire O'Callaghan for Palgrave Macmillan called Serial Killing on Screen: Adaptation, True Crime and Popular Culture.
