My teaching and research is focused on Modern British, Irish and American Literature, Drama, Psychoanalysis and Cultural Theory. Currently, I am working on a book-length project exploring the historical and philosophical underpinnings of Camp in modernism (Camp as in “How campy, dahling!”). I am also co-editing and contributor to a book entitled The Encyclopedia of Cultural Theory for University of Toronto Press (Completion date: September 2015), and an essay collection on Edith Sitwell for University of Florida Press (with Gyllian Phillips) (Completion date: October 2014). I recently completed an article on Jacques Lacan, the Baroque, and the Posthuman, and am working on two more articles: the first is wrestling with the problem of ruins, and the second considers the notion of object-oriented ontology in the rococo modernism of Ronald Firbank.
