My current research focuses on nineteenth-century freethought periodicals. I have been awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to complete my project ‘Reading the Freethought Movement: Atheism, Agnosticism, and Secularism, 1866–1907’ at QMUL, commencing January 2021. I am co-editor on the Routledge Historical Resource Nineteenth-Century Religion and Literature, Vol. 4 Disbelief and New Beliefs, with Naomi Hetherington (forthcoming autumn/winter 2020). I have previously been awarded a 2017 Curran Fellowship by the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals to undertake a project titled ‘Reviewing The Secular Review (1876-1907)’. My monograph – Constance Naden: Scientist, Philosopher and Poet – won the 2017 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Nineteenth-Century Studies and was published in October 2019; it builds upon my PhD thesis on Naden as an exemplary Victorian interdisciplinary thinker. It is the first full-length study on Naden’s life and works. Aspects of my research on Naden have been published in articles in Victorian Poetry (2018), Journal of Victorian Culture (with Sarah Parker, 2018), and Literature Compass (2017). I have also published on gender, class, and disability in the case of the artificial hand in Victorian Literature and Culture (2017). Since May 2019, I have been Research Impact Officer for UCL’s Faculties of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. I have been a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, where I taught on a variety of modules within the BA and MA programmes, and more recently taught on the BA Comparative Literature degree at UCL. I was the 2017/18 C19 Matters Early-Career Fellowship at Cardiff University (run jointly by BAVS and BARS). Blog: https://nadensyearinsonnets.wordpress.com/
