Dr Louise Joy, Homerton
I am a fellow and Director of Studies (Part I) at Homerton College.
Literature of the long eighteenth century: eighteenth-century prose fiction; literature for children and young people; literature and the emotions; literature and philosophy; didactic writing; literature and education; British responses to the French Revolution; 1790s radicalism; literature and music. I am currently completing a book on eighteenth-century didacticism and the regulation of emotion.
Areas of Graduate Supervision:
I teach on the MPhil in Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Studies and the MPhil in Critical Approaches to Children's Literature (Education Faculty). I welcome applications from graduate students interested in working on any of the above.
