Personal profile

Research Interests

I am currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Research Fellow (2021-23) on a project entitled, Textuality, Place, and the Self: Reimagining Life Writing through Women’s Diaries from Ireland, 1725-1810.

My research interests in the long eighteenth century centre on women’s writing, Irish literature, transnational studies, and life writing. My first monographLiterary Salons Across Britain and Ireland in the Long Eighteenth Century (Palgrave, 2015) examined the important role played by salons in shaping literary culture, while both creating and sustaining transnational intellectual networks. It was written as a result of an Irish Research Council postdoctoral fellowship, and evolved from research commenced during my PhD, funded by a competitive PRTLI Government of Ireland scholarship. All of my publications showcase interdisciplinarity and a longstanding commitment to gender considerations.

I previously worked as a Teaching Fellow at Trinity College Dublin from 2016 to 2020, where I undertook teaching and supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the School of English and the Oscar Wilde Centre. The position included periods of research mobility through a Charlemont fellowship (to UK); a Moore Institute Fellowship (to ROI); and an AC Elias Fellowship (to USA). Prior to this, I worked as a Research Associate at Marsh’s Library, Dublin (2015-16), on a team-based archival project that led to the scholarly edition The Diary and Accounts of Elias Bouhéreau (Irish Manuscripts Commission, 2019).
