Research Interests 

After finishing her PhD at Trinity College Dublin, Tina joined the School of English at University College Cork, where she taught for two years on a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate modules.  She joined the Institute of Irish Studies immediately after finishing her contract at UCC and is currently completing a monograph entitled Gothic Interruptions: Charles Robert Maturin and the Haunting of Irish Romantic Fiction.  Her research interests include eighteenth- and early-nineteenth century British and Irish fiction, the Gothic novel, the national tale, and the historical novel.

Select Publications

Tina’s work has appeared in Eighteenth-Century Ireland, The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies, and The Literary Encyclopedia.  She has several pieces in press at the moment, including an entry on Charles Robert Maturin for the Blackwell Encyclopedia of Romanticism (Blackwell, 2010) and a paper entitled ‘Undermining Morality?:  National Destabilisation in The Wild Irish Girl and Corinne, ou L’Italie’, in Elke D'hoker, Raphael Ingelbien, and Hedwig Schwall, eds., Irish Women Writers: New Critical Perspectives (Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi, forthcoming, 2009).  Tina is also a regular contributor to the Irish history blog, Pue’s Occurrences, to which she willingly supplies her thoughts on eighteenth-century literature.
