My research focuses on British and Anglophone literature produced at the turn of the 20th century, and the antinomies that evoke this era- realism and modernism, center and periphery, etc. I am interested in how the novel of this era questions categories of aesthetic wholeness, political autonomy, and modernity. I also engage with critical and epistemological debates about literary form, aesthetic autonomy, and the postcolonial problem.
