Brigid Flynn’s research focuses on representation and identification in the novel, particularly with respect to the child in the Victorian era and throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Her research interests also include film studies, monster studies and children’s literature. She received her MA from the University of Rhode Island and is currently a doctoral candidate at Northeastern University where she has completed a certificate in women’s, gender and sexuality studies. Her dissertation in progress analyzes the monstrousness of children in the Victorian novel, reconceiving the monster outside of the Gothic tradition. In addition to teaching at RISD, she has taught first-year and advanced writing courses at Northeastern University and literature courses at Northeastern and Assumption College.
