Trish Bredar is a researcher specializing in British literature of the long nineteenth century. She received her PhD in English, with a graduate minor in Gender Studies, from the University of Notre Dame in 2021. Her doctoral thesis focused on representations of walking women in nineteenth-century literature, and her work on this topic has appeared in European Romantic Review and Victorians: A Journal of Culture and Literature.

During her IES fellowship, she will be conducting initial research on a new monograph project that examines representations of homelessness in Victorian literature.
