Supritha Rajan's research and teaching interests focus on nineteenth-century British literature, cultural studies, and critical theory. At present, Rajan is particularly concerned with the intersection of economics and ethics both within and outside the nineteenth-century context. Her current research project, which examines Victorian literature alongside nineteenth-century political economy and anthropology, questions traditional understandings of capitalism and the shared disciplinary genealogies of nineteenth-century political economy and anthropology. Rajan also has an interest in moral philosophy and plans to investigate the relationship between the moral emotions and narrative structure in the nineteenth-century novel. In addition to her activities as a scholar and teacher, Rajan is currently at work on a collection of poems.
