My central research interests relate to twentieth and twenty-first century women’s writing, especially women's modernist literature and its influences on recent fiction. I have written a monograph on Djuna Barnes' major works, and am also interested in early twentieth-century landscape symbolism, focusing primarily on texts by Rebecca West, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner and E. M. Forster. More recently I have begun to work on modernist refiguring in the work of contemporary women writers, focusing primarily on texts by Alice Munro and Linda Grant.
