Research Interests

My research interests are in the interrelated areas of modernism, American and Caribbean literature, and transnationalism. I have published monographs on Wallace Stevens, Caribbean poetry, and, most recently, on D.H. Lawrence and American literature. I am the co-editor of three Cambridge University Press collections on modernist poetry, Locations of Literary Modernism, the Cambridge Companion to Modernist Poetry, and A History of Modernist Poetry.  I also have a research interest in Frederick Douglass and Ireland.
