Dr Éadaoin Agnew


I am a senior lecturer and the Course Leader for English Literature. I specialise in the Victorian period, and I have a particular interest in the literature of the British empire. In both my teaching and my research, I assume a transnational and global approach to the nineteenth-century, although my research focuses largely on the Indian subcontinent. My first monograph, 'Imperial Women Writers in Victorian India' was published in 2017. Since then I have produced a scholarly edition of two early nineteenth-century travel texts and I been working on transnational anti-colonial discourses in fin-de-siècle India. I am also developing a pedagogical project to decolonise the Victorians. I am happy to supervise Phds in related topics.
