Emily is a PhD candidate specializing in nineteenth-century British literature. Her dissertation, tentatively titled “Wales, Prose Fiction, and Periodicals: Remapping the Nineteenth-Century British Literary Landscape,” focuses on Wales in nineteenth-century British literature and connects Wales' roles in fiction to its roles in genre development and dispersal, and in periodical press development. She has also done work on the afterlives of Victorian literature and people in YouTube web series, and is working on UGA’s graduate certificate in Women’s Studies. In July 2021, she participated in the National Humanities Center’s Graduate Student Summer Residency, funded by UGA’s Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.
