    Research Interests

    I'm a literary scholar and intellectual historian who works on questions of historical representation, historical remembrance, and the production of historical knowledge from the nineteenth century until today. Currently, my main research project is a book titled John Morley and the Uses of History in Victorian Liberal Culture. The aim of this book is to offer a critical reappraisal of the work of John Morley (1838-1923), a nineteenth-century statesman and "man of letters" whose ideas were instrumental in shaping British liberalism between the 1860s and 1914. Using Morley's writings as a way into some pivotal debates of the late nineteenth century -- about the nature of progress, the future of religion, and the responsibilities of empire -- the study explores the unique and central role of the historical imagination in shaping modern liberal thought and liberal culture.
