Bio/Research

I received my PhD in history from the University of Toronto in 2006 and my MA from Queen’s University in 2001. Prior to joining Laurier, I was an assistant professor at the University of Southern Mississippi from 2007-2011.

The main focus of my research is on representations of men’s mental illness in Victorian culture. This project entails a multi-textual approach, including medical registers, fiction, autobiographies and popular media. Ideas about mental illness were as much a creation of popular culture as medical research, and my work explores those connections. I am currently working on a monograph entitled Madmen in the Attic.

I am also pursuing a SSHRC-funded digital humanities project on contrasting views of Jack the Ripper’s London. This heart of the project is entitled "Mapping Ripper's Whitechapel," an open-access website tracing popular representations of crime, poverty, and sexuality from 1885-1895.
