Petra Clark is a PhD candidate whose research interests lie in late-Victorian print culture, particularly periodicals, illustration, and art criticism. She is currently working on her dissertation, Reading Aestheticism: Visual Literacy in Late-Victorian Women's and Girls' Periodicals, which maps the ways in which the Aesthetic movement and its ideas were promulgated in late-Victorian illustrated periodicals, and explores the juncture between Aestheticism as a transatlantic cultural movement on the one hand, and women's and girls' cultures on the other. Petra has served as the Research Assistant to the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection at the University of Delaware Library (2011-2012), and as the English Department's Assistant Director of Composition (2014-2015).
