Dr. Livingstone’s interests are broadly in nineteenth-century literature and culture, postcolonial studies, book history, literature and religion, and the digital humanities. His research addresses the colonial discourse of the Victorian period, with a particular focus on travel writing and the literature of African exploration.
He is the author of a reputation study, Livingstone’s “Lives”: A Metabiography of a Victorian Icon (MUP, 2014), and articles in journals such as Literature and Theology, Studies in Travel Writing, and Journal of Victorian Culture.
Open to PhD applications in the fields of Victorian literature and culture, and colonial and postcolonial studies. I particularly invite applications on:
- Imperial travel writing and the literature of exploration
- Nineteenth and twentieth-century colonial fiction
- The African novel in English
