Picturing Reform in Victorian Britain is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. A study of art and politics from the 1830s to the 1860s, it treats the wood engravings of illustrated journalism in their relation to extensions of the franchise. She particularly enjoys teaching interdisciplinary approaches to Victorian fiction in general and Dickens in particular.
