Research Themes
Research Summary

     Juliette has recently completed her second monograph, French Novels and the Victorians, published by OUP and the British Academy in 2017. The monograph takes issue with the portrayal of the Victorians as insular and prudish readers, and explores the extensive ties built between French and English writers, readers, and publishing industries. The research was funded by a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (2009-2012), and in 2012 a section of the research on Dumas was awarded a New Scholars Award by the Bibliographical Society of America.

     Her first monograph, Victorian Biography Reconsidered: A Study of Nineteenth-Century 'Hidden' Lives was published by OUP in 2010. The book considers the lives of obscure or minor individuals who form the subjects of Victorian biographers working against the contemporary fascination with 'Great Men'. Working-class biographies, 'failed' lives, the representation of female subjects, attempted recoveries of neglected Romantic artists, and the lesser luminaries of the Dictionary of National Biography are all given close analysis.
