Research Interests

  Historical investigations of the work of James Joyce; Joycean intetextualities; Gender and Genre in Contemporary Irish Writing; Spenser and representations of early modern Ireland, twentieth and twenty-first century Irish fiction, and feminist investigations of Irish women writers.
I currently supervise dissertations on Irish modernism, performance and the Irish literary revival, the historical contexts of Ulysses.  I invite projects on all aspects of the work of Joyce and of twentieth-century Irish culture especially Irish modernism and contemporary fiction.
