Research and Projects

Research and Projects. Cosmopolitanism and Victorian Fantasy. I am examining how Carroll, Kipling, Ingelow, Rossetti and others created fantasy literature that answers to the very heart of Victorian cosmopolitanism by redefining the Romantic image of the child from a character that connotes the rural, local, and national to one that transcends and defies these limitations.
