Dr. Carolyn Sigler
Victorian and Children’s Literatures
Office: 413 Humanities
I received my Ph.D. from Florida State University, and taught at Kansas State and California State San Jose before coming to UMD in 2001. My teaching and research focus on the intersection of childhood studies and Victorian literature and culture. I’ve published articles and presented at conferences on such topics as Mary Wollstonecraft, Lewis Carroll and Victorian fantasy literature, environmental children’s literature, and Victorian nature writing. I am currently working on a project that examines representations of science, nature, and empire in Victorian children’s literature.
