Dr Matt Kerr

Matt is a Lecturer in British Literature from 1837 to 1939 at the University of Southampton.

Matt’s research and teaching centre on Victorian literature and culture. His work spans both well-known figures— Dickens, Mill, Ruskin—and neglected ones, such as Captain Marryat. His articles have appeared in Essays in Criticism, Review of English Studies, and Dickens Studies Annual, among other places.

Matt co-edited Coastal Cultures of the Long Nineteenth Century, published in August 2018 by Edinburgh University Press.
