Brief Bio: 

Kristie Schlauraff works on nineteenth-century British literature with a focus on gothic fiction, the history of medicine and science, and sound studies, and she has published on these topics in Victorian Network, Poe Studies, and Literature Compass. Her book project, Embodied Soundscapes and Victorian Selfhood, hearkens to the rich acoustic layers of texts from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to George Du Maurier's Trilby to argue that gothic authors turned to the audible world to redefine embodiment and understand selfhood. Kristie's research and teaching interests extend to nineteenth-century American literature, transatlantic studies, and disability studies. She is a subcommittee member for the recently launched podcast of C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists (now beginning its second season) -- get in touch if you are interested in proposing an episode!
