Holly Wiegand

Within the vast field of 18th- and 19th-century British literature studies, my primary focus is on the intersection of literature and religion: the various manifestations and embodiments of religious themes and ideologies in the novels of the period. More broadly, I am interested in the novel as means for social change and moral reformation.
