Dr Éadaoin Agnew


I am a senior lecturer in English Literature with a special interest in the Victorian period, especially the literatures of empire, popular fictions, and Indian writing. I also work more generally on travel writing, global literatures, and literary theory. My first monograph, 'Imperial Women Writers in Victorian India' was published in 2017. Since then I have been working on transnational anti-colonial discourses in fin-de-siècle India and I am developing a pedagogical project on decolonizing the Victorians.
