My research focuses on 19th-century visual and material culture. Current research projects look at the visual and material cultures of education, children's picture books, and crafting practices. I am one of the organizers of the Crafting Communities project, along with Mary Elizabeth Leighton and Vanessa Warne, and co-curator (with Heather Caverhill) of the virtual exhibition Photographies, hosted by Bruce Peel Special Collections at the University of Alberta.
