My general research areas are contemporary American literature and culture, and theories of life writing with a particular focus on women's writing. I have also published within the area of transcultural approaches to literature and have an interest in adaptation studies.
I have co-edited (with Kate McLoughlin), the anthology Tove Jansson Rediscovered (2007). The monograph Writing Feminist Lives, in which I outline auto/biographical approaches to the historicizing of the modern women's movement, was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2017.
My current research deals with France and the French as imaginary tropes in American popular culture.
