Heather earned her BA in English and Political Science at Washington and Jefferson College (via University of London) and her MA in Literature here at Pitt. A few years later, she returned to Pitt to pursue a PhD in Literature, concentrating on the long nineteenth century. She is currently working on women’s travel writing produced in the nineteenth century, which touches on a variety of her interests: gender studies, feminist historiography, composition and rhetoric, Imperialism, visual representation and how these fields impact the writing and reading of texts. That said, her passion for Victorian novels is always at the forefront of her mind.
