After gaining a BA from the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. from University College London, I worked initially at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge before coming to King's in 2003.
- Virginia Woolf
- Modernist women writers
- Modernism and colonialism
- Literary sound studies
I would be interested in hearing from prospective doctoral students in any of these areas or modernism more broadly.
My recent publications include a scholarly edition of Woolf’s The Years for the Cambridge University Press Edition of the Works of Virginia Woolf (general editors: Jane Goldman and Susan Sellers). My monograph, Modernist Voyages: Colonial Women Writers in London 1890-1945 (Cambridge University Press, 2014), shortlisted for the Modernist Studies Association Book Prize, looks at the intersection of anti-colonialism and feminism in writing by women who travelled to London from India, the Caribbean, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa during the modernist period.
I am currently working on a project on interwar literary modernism and noise, and am editing a volume on Literature and Sound for Cambridge University Press.
For more details, please see my full research profile.
I teach modules on Virginia Woolf, modernism, and literary soundscapes.
