Dr. Lindsy Lawrence
Holt, Room 112 A
Areas of Expertise: Elizabeth Gaskell, gender roles and fictional conventions of 19-century British literature.
Dr. Lindsy Lawrence, Associate Professor of English at UAFS, teaches a variety of courses in nineteenth-century British literature with special attention to publication history, gender roles, and the conventions of serial fiction. She has also taught a number of introductory and upper-level writing courses designed to focus on popular culture and new media studies.
Her current book manuscript, Affect and Sentiment: Elizabeth Gaskell’s Periodical Negotiations, examines how Elizabeth Gaskell’s work, predominantly published in family literary magazines and heavily influenced by nineteenth-century print culture, constructs and challenges nineteenth-century class and gender ideology through her use of affect. Lawrence is also working on a digital indexing project on poetry in nineteenth-century periodicals. Periodical Poetry: An Index of Poetry in Nineteenth-Century Periodicals indexes English-language poetry published in nineteenth-century periodicals, including texts by nineteenth-century British and American poets, poets from earlier periods, and poems in English translation.
