Scholarship

My scholarly interests are primarily in transnational and comparative approaches to the study of poetry, poetry and modernization, Oscar Wilde studies, including aestheticism, and questions of historicity and translatability. Using a comparative method involves for me reading closely, reading historically, and reading broadly, a method that inherently leads to crossing fields. It also often means for me an avenue to examine peripheral or overlooked connections between authors, texts, and histories to shed an alternative perspective.
