Shelbi Ferguson

Graduate Student

I joined the PhD program in 2020 after earning my M.A. in English at Duquesne University and my B.A. in English Literature here at Pitt. My research focuses on Victorian literature and culture, with an emphasis on the history of the body. I'm particularly interested in the cultural histories of sexuality, pornography & erotica, crime and murder narratives, and representations of feminine subjectivities and desires.
