My current research focuses on cultural history of public transit in nineteenth-century France. I have recently completed a book on the Parisian omnibus and its relation to nineteenth-century mass culture. The book is forthcoming with Manchester University Press, in their Interventions: Rethinking the Nineteenth-century series. I also recently have coedited a volume of essays on new methodological approaches to French popular culture (published in April 2017). In addition, I have recently completed a second major project, an annotated scholarly edition of nineteenth-century popular texts, to be published by the MLA Text and Translation series. Since the “cultural turn” in literary studies several years ago, and given that most colleagues I know include such texts (alongside canonical literature) in their regular teaching, such a volume could be very useful in teaching nineteenth-century literature and culture. My current research project focuses on writings by Emmeline Raymond, a prominent 19th-c journalist and editor-in-chief of La Mode Illustrée, a fashion magazine that also cast itself as an arbiter of taste and bourgeois morality. The outcome will likely be several articles in a peer-review journals, and eventually a book - a literary and cultural biography of this important if overlooked figure.
