The primary focus of my research is on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature and have a particular interest in the work of Thomas Hardy. I have published a monograph entitled Thomas Hardy and the Law (Edinburgh University Press, 2013) and an edited collection of essays entitled Victorian Time: Technologies, Standardizations, Catastrophes (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013). I am also editing a collection of essays on neglected Victorian writers, which explores working relationships and influences between canonical and non-canonical authors, the role played by print culture in Victorian literary productions and ultimately, the ideological dynamics of canon formation. Victorian Fiction beyond the Canon is forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan in 2016.
