Dr Charlotte Mathieson
In my position as Research Fellow I am responsible for two projects at the Institute of Advanced Study.
BookFest: the University of Warwick Book Festival
The Book Festival takes place in the summer term, and in 2014 was on 17-18th May - full details are available on the Festival Website.
As Festival Director I convene all aspects of the Festival and can be contacted for all media and publicity enquiries, speaker and programming information, website and digital media content, and general information about the Festival.
Early Career Researcher Programmes
I lead the organisation and running of the Academic Careers and Employability Programme for early career researchers at Warwick, supporting the Early Career and Global Research Fellows at the Institute.
My full profile of early career researcher work is available and updated regularly on my website.
I research nineteenth century literature, focusing on journeys in novels of the 1840s-60s, with an interest in the intersections of gender, space and mobility. I have published on Charles Dickens and George Eliot and co-edited the collection Gender and Space in Rural Britain, 1840-1920 (Pickering and Chatto, 2014). My monograph Journeys in the Victorian Novel: Gendered Mobilities and the Place of the Nation is currently in preparation. I have previously taught in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at Warwick.
Full details about my research activities can be found on my website.
In 2014-15 I will be teaching:
- Sexual Geographies: Gender and Place in British Fiction, 1840-1940 (MA); lecture-seminars on "Gendering the Nation in Villette" and "Wandering Women: The Mill on the Floss"
- The European Novel (Undergraduate): lecture on "Nation and Narration in Great Expectations"
I have previously taught on modules include The English Nineteenth-Century Novel and Modes of Reading; full details on my CV.
