Personal profile

Research Interests

My interests move between the fin de siècle and modernism, with a particular focus on the relationship between aesthetics and politics in modern literature. My research interests also include:

- Irish literature and politics

- British and Irish modernism

- Aesthetic theory

- Critical and cultural theory


My PhD thesis, 'Irish modernity in Ulster: 1898-1912', focuses on:

- Political commitment in Irish literature, drama and commemoration

- Regional modernisms and the Ulster little magazine

- Romantic Hellenism and the modernist Bildungsroman

- Satiric modernism, myth and politics in early twentieth-century Irish drama


I am also working on a bibliographic study of modern Irish art-writing at the turn of the twentieth century.
