Areas of Focus
Kaylee Henderson is a doctoral candidate in English, and she earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and her Master of Arts in English from Missouri State University. Her research centers on transatlantic women’s networks, women’s multi-genre political writing, and verbal militancy in the long nineteenth century. She is the author of the Emmeline Pankhurst entry in Lesa Scholl’s Encyclopedia of Victorian Women Writers with Palgrave, and her review of The Routledge Companion to Victorian Literature appears in the Fall 2020 issue of Victorian Periodicals Review. In 2019, she received the Women and Gender Studies Graduate Research Award and the Department of English Doctoral Research Grant for work on her dissertation, “Words of Mass Destruction: Verbal Militancy in 19th-Century Women’s Political Writing.” When she’s not reading Victorian novels, she spends her time re-watching The X-Files with her partner Colin and their two rescue pups, Bently James and Oscar Wilde.
