Terra Walston Joseph specializes in Victorian literature with emphasis on its engagement with the politics of race, empire, and gender. Her current research project studies the links between nineteenth-century speculative fiction, settler colonialism, and emerging ideas about Anglo-Saxon global polity in the works of such writers as Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Anthony Trollope, and Catherine Helen Spence. She teaches upper-division Romantic literature and Victorian literature courses, core literature courses for non-majors, and composition.
