Chloe joined the department in 2016 as a specialist in eighteenth-century literature and culture. She is a member of the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies. Her research focuses on interdisciplinary approaches to print culture and she holds degrees in literature (University of Virginia) and the history of dress (Courtauld Institute of Art).
Chloe was previously Associate Professor of English at the University of Georgia. At UGA, her research received support from the Willson Center for the Humanities and Arts, the Sarah Moss Fellowship and the Office of the Vice President for Research. She was the recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Outstanding Assistant Professor in the Arts and Humanities in 2015.
Chloe is working on an interdisciplinary co-edited collection, Material Literacy in Eighteenth-Century Britain: A Nation of Makers, with historian Dr Serena Dyer. It is forthcoming from Bloomsbury's Material Culture of Art and Design series. Her chapter focuses on recipes for crafts and women's material literacy in Hannah Robertson's Young Ladies School of Arts.
For 2018-19, Chloe received mid-career fellowships from the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art and the British Academy to support the research and writing of her second monograph, a study of women and material entanglements in the eighteenth-century Atlantic world. A portion of the project appeared in the Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies in 2017. More information about the project is available at the department's current research projects.
Chloe has two forthcoming articles, one on small things in Eighteenth-Century Fiction's special issue on 'Material Fictions' and the other on haberdashery in the work of Frances Burney in Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature.
Chloe would welcome hearing from prospective students in eighteenth-century studies with interests in the history of the novel, interdisciplinary studies, gender studies, women’s writing, visual and material culture, the global eighteenth century and transatlantic print culture.
