Mark is interested in the interplay between Victorian literature and culture, especially in the representations of lower-class, supernatural, or Other bodies -- corporeal forms marginalized by the structures of society. He is also interested in synaesthesia, literary soundscapes, and the cultural history of nineteenth-century British facial hair.
