Sara Maurer

Sara Maurer is an Associate Professor of English. Sara Maurer's research focuses on nineteenth-century literature produced throughout the British Isles. Her first book, The Dispossessed State: Britain, Ireland, and Narratives of Ownership in the Nineteenth Century explores how both British and Irish writers saw Ireland as the site of a unique, culturally specific style of ownership, far different from the wholly individual, absolutely alienable property of the capitalist marketplace. In addition to researching the literary interactions between the Celtic regions and the English core of the British Isles, she is currently researching the repetitive practices of everyday Victorian culture that waver in status between archaic ritual and modern bureaucratization.
