I am a PhD student at the University of New Mexico where I research Irish and British laboring-class women writers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I am the recent recipient of the Joseph C. Gallagher Research Fellowship for study in Ireland and Europe during the 2015-16 academic year. In particular, my work seeks to draw connections between urban and rural non-canonical laboring-class women writers in an effort to better understand the literary networks that existed between women and across national borders of the period.
