Research Interests

Dr. Madsen's work reads the intersection of nineteenth-century British literature and religion through the lens of material culture. She has published on material culture and Dickens in "Phiz's Black Doll: Integrating Text and Etching inBleak House" (Victorian Literature and Culture, 2013). Her current research project examines nineteenth-century British travel narratives in Alaska and the Arctic for the material traces of their religious context.
