About my research

I research French women writers and visual artists from the 19th and early 20th centuries, using archival sources. I am interested in creative women's exclusion from literary and artistic institutions and the ways they have sought recognition for their work. I also work on women's travel writing, epistolary writing and biography.

How my research improves life

I study the ways that women have been excluded from literary and artistic institutions and suggest ways that institutions can re-examine their histories and become more inclusive.
