She revised two articles for publication: "Daughter of the Revolution: Mary Shelley in Our Times" for the Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies (Summer 2004), and "Memory and Mobility: Fictions of Population in Defoe, Goldsmith and Scott" for Blackwell's Companion to the Eighteenth-Century Novel (2004). She did some organizational and editorial work on a collection she is coediting (with Jill Heydt-Stevenson), tentatively titled Recognizing the Romantic Novel.
