MAJOR RESEARCH PROJECT IN PROGRESS:
Living in Public: Studies in Liberal Subjectivity.  How is the microhistory of a British
family connected to the macrohistory of anti-slavery activism? This project investigates 
networks that connect activists to each other and the role taken by performance (in 
theatres, concert halls, pulpits, parliament, and at the hustings) to connect leisure 
time, social time, and private time to the constitution of metropolitan and global public 
spheres. How did a young man with a Methodist upbringing become an activist, then 
a writer, and finally an orator? How did a young woman with impeccable Radical 
credentials balance her reproductive life with a career that took her first to criticism then 
to activism? This project challenges reigning ideas about mid-Victorian marriage and 
gender, the “mere populism” of performance, and the legibility of activists who toiled and 
socialized among the most prominent figures of their day, lived almost entirely “under the 
radar” of public prominence, yet were the engineers of anti-colonial, anti-racist, and antigenocidal critiques.
