MPhil Dissertation: 'Horace Walpole: From Knowledge-Making, to Self-Making in the Gothic Vatican of Strawberry Hill'

Supervisor: Dr Frank Salmon

College: Christ's College

Research Interests

In my thesis I am focusing on the links between Horace Walpole's self-creation and establishing alternative, anti-rational modes of writing history. 

My other interests include:

- questions and representations of 'the animal' in early modern period;
- global art history and cultural translations (particularly the role of chinoiserie in 18th-century British visual culture);
- relation between textuality and image (especially in Gothic fiction);
- feminist and queer theory; 
- medieval architecture.
