- Literary Theory
- Literature - 19th Century
In my recent work I survey Anglophone and other literature of the early twentieth century, focusing on the sounds this literature represents and the other arts (especially music) with which it is engaged. Other interests more broadly include nineteenth-century American literature, modernism and history of the body. In my current and future research, I will focus in detail on the writings of Ralph Ellison. This work will continue to explore issues relating to sound and sound technology, and will also pay more sustained attention than my previous work to the theory and practice of cinema.
