Dr. Gwilliam’s teaching focuses on the encounters between popular culture and elite literature in the Restoration and eighteenth century; on sexuality and gender in the period; and on medicine and literature. Her current research project, Embodying Narrative: The Female Body in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture, examines such artifacts as counterfeit maidenheads, cosmetic treatises, and chameleon actresses to construct an understanding of the relationship between body and text in the eighteenth century.
