Amy Milka is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions ‘Change' program led by Professor David Lemmings. She specialises in eighteenth-century history, literature and culture. Her research interests include the history of law and legal culture, print culture and visual satire, radical politics and emotions. Her current research focuses on two areas: emotions in eighteenth-century criminal courtrooms; and Jacobinism in England and France during the French Revolution.

Amy was appointed Lecturer in Eighteenth Century English Literature at the University of York (2013-14), and Teaching Fellow in the School of English at the University of Sussex (2014-15). She has taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses on many aspects of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and culture, including primitivism, representations of the city, and gender and sexuality. She is also interested in the digital humanities, and thinking about new digital research methods and approaches. She co-founded the University of York Digital Humanities Forum in 2013.
