Professor Montwieler generally teaches classes in eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century literature, and she is particularly interested in constructions of gender and sexuality. Most of her research has focused on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British women writers, but she is currently writing an essay on empathy and Dickens’s Bleak House. Her long-term project addresses the role of sensibility in nineteenth-century women’s poetry.
