My primary research areas are Literary Modernism, Periodical and 'Little Magazine' Studies, Digital Humanities, and the global networks of literature, visual art, history, and cultural production that flourished between 1890-1950.
I have particular interests in transnational modernist literatures, Asian-American fiction, the Japanese 'I novel', interactions between American modernism and Latin American modernismo, and Caribbean/ Harlem Renaissance interchanges. I also explore intersections between periodical culture and Medical Humanities and Interdisciplinary Approaches to literature.
My current research centres on three key projects:
1. A monograph exploring the representations of global modernisms and transnational
literary production in early twentieth-century modernist periodicals.
2. The creation of a large-scale, fully searchable, open access Digital Humanities archive
that maps global contributors to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century modernist
periodicals. A partnership with Clifford Wulfman at Princeton University, the project is an
extension of Princeton's Blue Mountain Project.
3. An edited collection framing Victorian and Modern literature through new, dialogic
I am also a Co-Editor of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies.
