PhD projects

I am keen to work with research students exploring pre-1945 American art, realist and proletarian art and literature, and nineteenth and twentieth century (American) print culture and illustration. But as below I have supervised on a range of late-nineteenth-, twentieth-, and twenty-first- century American literature, visual art, and culture topics and would be very happy to discuss projects in these areas.
