The postdoctoral fellow is:
- Stephanie King (FQRSC; Columbia University / Concordia University): King’s primary area of research is masculinity and deviance in Victorian fiction and culture. Her research seeks to explore the relationship between laws, behaviour, and gender through literary manifestations of masculine identity. Her current project focuses on the cycle of exclusion and lawlessness that is provoked by the narrative trope of wills in Victorian and early Edwardian fiction. Previous research questions Victorian conventions of narrative and gender by introducing the character of the fallen man as an identifiable nineteenth-century persona.
