My research project
The Iron Arm of Empire: Railways and Imperialism in Nineteenth-Century Literature
My thesis examines how British literature responding to and interested in the developing railway network created and projected ideas of nationalism and imperialism. By interrogating works of journalism, poetry and fiction, my thesis explores identities the motif of the railway produced across nineteenth-century literatures.
