Personal profile

I am an AHRC Techne funded doctoral student. My research looks at how natural history, in many ways, dwelt within the feminine sphere of Victorian culture and charts a more intimate, personal exploration of natural history that examines the lives of its practitioners beyond the impact of conventional watersheds. My project will be underpinned by both literary and scientfic 19thC texts in an interdisciplinary study towards an evolving understanding of the historiography of science.

Other work

I am currently co-director of the Centre for Victorian Studies here at Royal Holloway. I put together both the 2017/18 programme alongside Dr Katie McGettigan and the 2016/17 programme alongside Professor Juliet John. I also ran The London Victorian Studies Colloquium alongside Professor Juliet John in April, 2016. 

Research interests

I am particularly interested in digital humanities, questions of materiality, the growing field of research on the history of emotions, and the connection between art and science. Delve into The Cabinet of Curiosity, or follow me on twitter @rosalindmwhite where I blog about my research interests.


I taught alongside Professor Ruth Livesey on the Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture course (EN3202) (Autumn 2016) and the Literature of the Fin de Siècle course (EN2309) (Spring 2017).
