Q&A: LeeAnne M. Richardson

19 Cents

LeeAnne M. Richardson is an Associate Professor of English at Georgia State University, where she teaches classes in Victorian British literature and culture, as well as courses on Oscar Wilde, the Irish Easter Rising, and World War One. Her research focuses on late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century literature, especially the ways generic forms and markers intersect and interact with discourses of gender and imperialism. She is currently working on a book manuscript extending the argument of her recently published essay in Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, “Turn of the Century Women’s Poetry: Skirting the Problems of Periodization,” which proposes a new period category—turn of the century women’s poetry—wedded to a new formalist approach. Her first book, New Woman and Imperial Adventure Fiction: Gender, Genre and Empire (2006) explored the fiction of the same period. She has also published essays on Olive Schreiner and Flora Annie Steel, as well as on Edwardian fiction.

In which directions do you think nineteenth-century scholarship should evolve in the near future? Most of the things that I would want are already happening: for instance, the turn towards transatlantic and global perspectives; the interest in affect, ecology, and animal studies. I suppose I would like to see more work on the theatre, since it rarely receives anything like the level of attention of the novel. But I believe nineteenth-century studies is in pretty . . .
