Deborah Nord works on nineteenth-century British literature and culture, with emphasis on the novel, painting, autobiography, writing about the city, gender, and social criticism.  Her books have included studies of the Fabian socialist Beatrice Webb, urban investigation, and the representation of Gypsies in British writing and myth. She has just completed a book with her colleague Maria DiBattista on women writers and public life and is now working on the relationship between fiction and the visual arts in the Victorian period.
