He has been a Fellow at Oxford University (Pembroke College) and Birkbeck (University of London), and the recipient of fellowships from the National Humanities Center and the ACLS.

His books include The Burdens of Perfection: On Ethics and Reading in Nineteenth Century Literature (Cornell University Press, 2008) and Novels Behind Glass: Commodity Culture and Victorian Narrative (Cambridge University Press, 1995), and Sexualities in Victorian Britain, which he co-edited with James Eli Adams (Indiana University Press, 1996).

He is currently working on a book titled On Not Being Someone Else, a study of unled lives and their relation to literary representation.
