Tom Schmid's areas of teaching and research include British Romantic literature, Victorian literature, the Gothic novel, Romanticism and gender, and Romanticism and addiction. The latter topic has led him particularly to the work of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas De Quincey, and Charles Lamb, but he has published research on William Wordsworth, Joanna Hutchinson, John Keats, Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley and Dorothy Wordsworth in various scholarly venues as well. His monograph on "Humor and Transgression in Peacock, Shelley and Byron" (1992) won the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Book Award, and he co-edited and contributed to an essay collection on "Romanticism and Pleasure" with Palgrave in 2010.
