Sari Carter

Doctoral Candidate

Research Interests

Sari Carter is studying nineteenth-century British literature; her research interests include the nonfiction essay, experimental and epistolary or periodical genres, and intersections between aesthetics, ethics, and philosophy. She is interested in revising borderlines of traditionally demarcated influence, investigating the relevance of extending conflicting nineteenth-century perspectives on such aesthetic, ethical, and philosophical intersections to understand early twentieth-century modernism. She has also done some work in creative nonfiction.
