Dr. Sandra Dinter



I joined the Department of English and American Studies at FAU in April 2018. My research and teaching cover British literature and culture from the early modern period to the present. I am particularly interested in literary representations of gender and space, adaptation studies, literary and cultural theory, (neo-)Victorian Studies and narrative fiction about and for children. My first monograph Childhood in the Contemporary English Novel is forthcoming with Routledge in 2019. My second book project provisionally entitled “Representations of Female Pedestrian Culture in Britain, 1780s-1890s” examines depictions of female pedestrians in British literature and culture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Together with my colleague Dr. Sarah Schäfer-Althaus (University of Koblenz) I am currently organising a conference on Locating Intersections of Medicine and Mobility in 19th-Century Britain that will take place in Erlangen in October 2019.
