Biography

Dr. Tina Morin holds a BA from Georgetown University, with a Major in English literature, and a PhD in English from Trinity College Dublin. Before joining UL in 2012, she held an IRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Trinity College Dublin (2010-12) and a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the Institute of Irish Studies at Queen's University Belfast (2009-10). Prior to that, Tina held a temporary lecturing position in the School of English at University College Cork (2007-09). She is currently the Head of English at UL and is also the course director for the MA in Global Irish Studies, which will run for the first time in the academic year 2020/21. Tina's research interests centre on Romantic-era Irish gothic literature, book history, and Irish women's writing. She is the author of The Gothic Novel in Ireland, c. 1760-1829 (2018) and Charles Robert Maturin and the Haunting of Irish Romantic Fiction (2011). She has also edited, with Marguérite Corporaal, Traveling Irishness in the Long Nineteenth Century (2017) and, with Niall Gillespie, Irish Gothics: Genres, Forms, Modes and Traditions (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014). Her current research focuses on the dissemination and circulation of Irish novels published in London by the Minerva Press.

Research Interests

Tina's research specialisms include Irish gothic literature, eighteenth-century Irish print culture and book history, and Irish women's writing, particularly in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She supervises Final Year Projects and MA theses on a wide range of related topics, including, for instance, gender politics in contemporary zombie narratives; a reader response approach to Dracula; and the representation of sectarian violence in Northern Irish 'Troubles' fiction. Current PhD projects include studies of the fiction of Sheridan Le Fanu and of the representation of disability in The Wizard of Oz series.
