My research centers on constructions of gender in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. I am particularly interested in the construction and negotiation of gender in the interactions between consumers and popular media. I am further interested in examining the ways that these interactions, including folk production, fan activities, and individual creative work, transform the meanings associated with cultural products.
