Bio/Research

Ann Wilson's current research circulates around issues relating to constructions of gender and masculinity in the context of the middle class in late Victorian and Edwardian England. In particular, she is interested in formations of middle-class heterosexual masculinity and the demise for this mode of masculinity in the latter part of the 19th-century. The focus of my work is the theatrical expression of gender and sexuality in plays written the late 19th and early 20th-centuries, with attention to how such interests are manifest through performance. This is an area of research she moved into roughly ten years ago, but as she has done so, she has maintained an active interest in her earlier areas of research: contemporary Canadian and British women playwrights.
