Research

Research Interests

My primary research area is early to mid-twentieth century women's writing, religion and spirituality and feminist theory.

I also have a teaching and research interest in anglophone children's literature (mid-nineteenth century to the present).

I would welcome enquires to supervise phd students in the following areas: modernism, late nineteenth and twentieth century women's writing, feminist theory, children's literature, life-writing, literature and religion.

Current Research

My current research project explores spirituality and things in the work of four modernist women writers: Mary Butts, Virginia Woolf, H.D. and Gwendolyn Brooks.
