Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests are interdisciplinary in nature, and cover the areas of Stylistics; Cognitive Stylistics; Indian Literature in English; Life-Writing; and Postcolonial/Global Literatures. I have published on topics ranging from point of view and modality, narrative empathy, and conceptual metaphor theory to Media English and Indian Literature in English. Current projects include the application of cognitive stylistics and cognitive psychology to popular music; researching metaphor use in religious and postcolonial contexts; critical analysis of local tourism discourse; and multimodal stylistic analysis of literary and televisual texts.
