About

I teach courses in Restoration and eighteenth-century British literature. I've published articles on Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, Hester Thrale, Elizabeth Carter, and Laurence Sterne, and am the co-editor, with Jack Lynch, of the Oxford World's Classics edition of Johnson and Boswell's accounts of their 1773 trip to the Scottish Hebrides. I'm currently at work, again with Jack, on a Broadview edition of Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year (1722). When I'm not geeking out on all things eighteenth century, I love to cook--and I've been known to watch marathons of true-crime TV until I'm too terrified to fall asleep.
