Professor McAdams is currently at work on a book entitled, How the Victorians Invented the Regency: Historicizing the Recent Past. The book argues that Victorian literary responses to the Napoleonic Wars and Regency period (1800-1820) generated discontinuous, non-linear visions of history that contrast with the narratives of progress typically associated with the Victorians. She is planning a second book project on the historical novel in a global context.
