My general research areas are contemporary American literature and culture, more recently with a focus on sustainability and literature.
Previous research has dealt with theories of life writing and women's writing. I have also published within the area of transcultural approaches to literature and have an interest in adaptation studies.
The monograph Writing Feminist Lives (2017), in which I outline auto/biographical approaches to the historicizing of the modern women's movement, was published in Palgrave MacMillan's "Breaking Feminist Waves" series. I have also co-edited (with Dr. Kate McLoughlin), the anthology Tove Jansson Rediscovered (2007).
My current research deals with the use of picturebooks to increase pre-service teachers' awareness of sustainable development education in the English subject. I am also interested in human-animal relationships in contemporary women's fiction.
