Assistant Professor Jamie Horrocks teaches classes in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British literature and culture and literature by women. She specializes in late-Victorian aestheticism and gender and sexuality studies. She uses an interdisciplinary Victorian studies methodology in her courses and her research, bringing literary, artistic, popular, and historical texts into conversation in order to broaden the scope of critical analysis. Professor Horrocks’s research interests include late-nineteenth-century British aestheticism, including high art, popular, and Arts and Crafts aestheticism. Her work in late-Victorian literature and culture includes forays into food culture, Ritualism and British Anglo-Catholicism, history of the book, early Bloomsbury aesthetic theory, neo-Victoriana, and the nineteenth-century narrative essay. Professor Horrocks received her Ph.D. in English and Victorian Studies from Indiana University in 2010, where she also served as managing editor of Victorian Studies. She completed her MA and BA degrees at Brigham Young University.
