Tyler Groff is a second year doctoral student in English with a research focus situated in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century British literature and drama. He is currently exploring ways in which Britain’s imperial project prompted thinkers of the time to consider interweaving anxieties concerning national identity, gender, and environmental sustainability. His recent research has considered, among other things, how the anti-plumage movement shaped, and was shaped by, the millinery trade and stage costuming trends.
