About

Catherine Judd received her masters in Comparative Literature in '86 and her PhD in English Literature in '91 both from UC Berkeley, and is an Associate Professor in the English Department at the University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida. She has written a book on Victorian nursing and articles on various nineteenth-century topics including representing the London crowd, women writers' use of male pseudonyms, English representations of the Irish Famine, and English responses to the American Civil War. Currently she is writing about Londoners converting to Mormonism in the early 1840s and how some of these conversions connect back to English dissent traditions of the 1640s and '50s. After she finishes this project she will be working on an essay focused on Percy Bysshe Shelley's influence on Thomas Hardy's novels, particularly "Jude the Obscure." She has been the recipient of several research awards including a National Institute of the Humanities Summer Research award. She can be reached at c.judd@miami.edu.
