Areas of Interest

Charlotte's research covers Victorian and neo-Victorian literature and contemporary women's fiction, particularly focusing on the history and literature of psychiatry, psychiatric intervention, and psychiatric incarceration. She also focuses on women's protest literature, including literary protests against marriage, conventional family life, psychiatric incarceration, and the law. Furthermore her work also focuses on Det Moderne Gennembrud/ The (Scandinavian) Modern Breakthrough, and uses this as a framework through which to explore fin de si├Ęcle and late nineteenth century literature. Charlotte is interested in feminist and psychological readings, or approaches, to literature analysis. It is Victorian literature that is her real passion.

Whilst at University, Charlotte completed research essays on pre1800 poetry and drama, including writing on the works of Donne, Milton and Shakespeare. She also wrote on the Gothic, the dramatic monologues of Browning and Webster, and poetry of the First World War, to name but a few!
