After an early career in theatre, Toni received her PhD in English literature from the University of California, Berkeley, specializing in the Romantic period. Like a good gypsy scholar, she taught at Berkeley, Gettysburg College, and Princeton University, before closing out her career at Cal State, Fresno. As an author, her first book studied the Gothic horror novel for its advancement of heroic national qualities; her subsequent work, ranging among topics like Irish landscape, theatre history, ecocriticism, and feminism, discussed works by authors such as Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Maria Edgeworth, Charlotte Bronte, and Charles Dickens. She published her final book, Monstrous Fellowship: 'Pagan, Turk and Jew' in English Popular Culture, 1740-1845, from which this talk is drawn, at the end of 2018.
