Jeremy Davidheiser is a PhD student specializing in the British long nineteenth century. His research focuses on the intersection between masculinity and politics, especially in narratives ranging from verse to novel form. He is interested in pursuing a dissertation that examines the importance of justified violence--of fighting for a cause--to defining the modern masculine hero, a facet of modern masculinity that transforms premodern notions of chivalry and heroism for the modern world.
