Kelsey Rall

In 2023-2024, Kelsey will be a fifth-year Ph.D. student within the English Department at Vanderbilt University. 

Kelsey received her B.A. in English from Bryn Mawr College and her MA in Irish Writing and Film from the University College Cork in Ireland. In her undergraduate and MA research, she focused primarily on queer theory and gender and sexuality studies, specifically in the work of Virginia Woolf and late Victorian Anglo-Irish authors. Her dissertation focuses on how single women disrupt and redefine notions of gender, kinship, and temporality in nineteenth-century literature.
