Research

Dominique’s academic research principally covers the area of Victorian literature and culture. She has been published in journals such as Word&Image and Victorian Poetry. Her interests include:

  • Victorian poetry, short fiction, and essays, especially by female writers such as Michael Field and Vernon Lee.
  • Media studies and the relationships between writing and other art forms (painting, sculpture, TV, etc.), including adaptation and ekphrasis.
  • The detective fiction genre from the nineteenth century to the present day, in particular in modern TV series focused on ‘amateur’ detectives/extraordinary sidekicks.
  • Broadly, the relationship between twenty-first-century culture and Victorian literature and culture through Neo-Victorianism as well as the continuity of political, social and cultural institutions, structures and norms.
