Dr Charlotte Mathieson
I joined the IAS in October 2012 as a Research Fellow to work on a number of IAS projects while developing my research and teaching profile. I previously completed my PhD in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies. I work in the following areas:
Early Career Researcher Programmes
I lead 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 updated regularly on my website.
Current and upcoming activity:
Talk: "A culture or publish or perish? The impact of the REF on early career researchers", at Westminster Higher Education Forum "Next Steps for the REF", 23rd April 2015
As Director of the Book Festival from 2012-14, I established the inaugural event in June 2013 which expanded to a two-day Festival in May 2014 - full details are available on the Festival Website.
I was responsible for all aspects of the Festival including speaker programming, website and digital media content, media and publicity, and management of assistants and interns.
I research travel and mobility in Victorian literature, focusing on novels of the 1840s-60s with an interest in the intersections of gender, space and mobility, and related issues of nation, empire and globality.
I have published on authors including 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.
Full details about my research activities including my full list of publications can be found on my website.
I have taught since 2008 in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick - full details of my teaching profile are on my CV.
In 2014-15 I am teaching the following:
Sexual Geographies: Gender and Place in British Fiction, 1840-1940 (MA module); 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.
