Dr. Haewon Hwang completed her undergraduate studies in Russian Literature at Harvard University and holds an MA and PhD in English from King's College London. Her research interests include urban literature and literary theory, especially in relationship to modernity. She has completed a monograph entitled London's Underground Spaces: Representing the Victorian City, 1840-1915 (Edinburgh University Press, 2013) and is exploring two new trajectories focusing on transnationalism and the city: one strand focuses on the lives of Russian revolutionary émigrés in fin-de-siècle London, while the other looks at the representation of dirt and contagion in global literatures.
