Kirsten MacLeod

Kirsten MacLeod is Lecturer at Newcastle University. Her research interests encompass late nineteenth and early twentieth century British and American literature and print culture. Particular interests include periodicals, the development of publishing and authorship in this period, histories of private and institutional collecting, and British and American Decadence, and the relationship between fin-de-siècle decadence and modernism. She has published Fictions of British Decadence: High Art, Popular Culture and the fin de siècle(Palgrave Macmillan 2006), an edition of a Marie Corelli’s popular 1890s novel, Wormwood (Broadview Press 2005), as well as articles on Corelli, M. P. Shiel, Carl Van Vechten, Henry James, and Jack London. More recently, her work has been on American little magazines of the 1890s. In 2013, she curated an exhibition with accompanying catalogue entitled American Little Magazines of the 1890s: A Revolution in Print (Grolier Club, New York City, 2013). A major monograph on the subject, American Little Magazines of the fin de siècle: Art, Protest, and Cultural Transformation is forthcoming in 2017 from University of Toronto Press.
