Bio
Natalie Rose Thompson is a PhD student who studies eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature; space, place, and recursive movement in British novels; feminist narrative theories; intertextuality and rewriting; and gender and sexuality theory. She is currently working on a dissertation tentatively entitled “Liminal Domesticity: Returning to the Threshold in the Nineteenth-Century Novel.” Natalie is originally from Austin, Texas, and loves Austin breakfast tacos and Austen juvenilia.
 

Bennington

My current research interests lie at an intersection between labor, ecology, gender, and physical embodiment. My dissertation, as yet untitled, focuses on the ways in which masculinities are constructed, tested, and imprinted on the environment in the poetry of Robert Frost, Seamus Heaney, and James Wright. I am also a poet and a memoirist.

Watts

Courtney is a medievalist interested in the medieval romance. She was a Medieval Colloquium representative from 2019-2021 and received an All-University Graduate Teaching Award in 2021. Courtney's work explores how medieval romances use topoi to experiment with kinde, medieval notions of nature and identity.

Brown

My research centers the theory and history of the nineteenth-century British novel: most recently, the ways midcentury novels change at the hands of earlier-century lyric forms. I’m increasingly drawn to the interstices of realism, the everyday, and address, but at the heart of my work is a sustained preoccupation with aesthetic forms and their collisions over time. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in English Language & Literature at the University of Virginia (expected graduation 2023), and I received my B.A.
