About Me

Photo of Caroline Winter

I hold a PhD in English literature from the University of Victoria. I’m currently working as an INKE Partnership Postdoctoral Fellow in Open Social Scholarship at the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) located within the University of Victoria Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Commons.
Inspired by my research experience, I have recently begun an MLIS at the University of Alberta’s School of Library and Information Studies.

My Research

My SSHRC-funded doctoral research focuses on Romantic-era British Gothic literature and the rise of commercial society, and my dissertation is available to read through UVicSpace: Gothic Economics: Gothic Literature and Commercial Society in Britain, 1750–1850. I am in the process of revising it for publication.

My other research interests include literature of the long nineteenth century, historical fiction, the history of the book, open scholarship, library and information science, and digital humanities. I have a particular interest in women writers, especially Charlotte Smith, Ann Radcliffe, Jane Austen, and Mary Shelley.
