Emily is a 4th-year doctoral student specializing in long 19th-century British literature. Her dissertation looks at the intersection of genre, region, and periodicals, specifically attending to how common/popular long 19th-century genres get rewritten when Wales is an integral part of a text’s content, audience, and circulation, and the role of periodicals in that relationship. She has also done work on the afterlives of Victorian literature and people in YouTube web series, and is working on UGA’s graduate certificate in Women’s Studies. In July 2021, she participated in the National Humanities Center’s Graduate Student Summer Residency, funded by UGA’s Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.

Recent conference presentations include: “Amy Levy’s The Romance of a Shop, Virginia Woolf’s Party Consciousness, and the Oblique, Feminine Perspective” at the British Women Writers Conference (March 2020); “Victorian Literature on YouTube: Issues of Genre and Audience Expectations” at the NAVSA annual conference (Oct. 2019); and “Middlemarch on YouTube: Shifts in Narrative Style and Narrative Voices” at the George Eliot International Bi-centenary conference (July 2019).
