Megan Woodworth is interested in the novels, political writings, and culture of the long eighteenth century in England. She explored these ares in relation to gender in her doctoral dissertation, "Becoming Gentlemen: Women Writers, Masculinity, and War, 1778-1818"; she will continue her work in a new project that examines the influence of the American Revolution in English fiction.
Dr. Woodworth's work has appeared in Eighteenth-Century Fiction, Persuasions On-line, and The Encyclopedia of British Romanticism (entries on Byron, the American Revolution, and Maria Edgeworth’s novels Belinda and The Absentee). Her first book, Eighteenth-Century Women Writers and the Gentleman’s Liberation Movement is being published by Ashgate.
