I focus on mid-19th to late 20th century British and Anglophone literature and culture, with special interests in modernism, gender studies, transnationalism and the postcolonial. My dissertation project explores the relationship between the novel of development, the national subject, and ideas of the aesthetic and social “ordinary” at the turn of the century.
