…My current book-length project, Mapping the Isles in British Modernism, explores the relationship between modernism and cultural identity in Britain, specifically looking at how modernist writing maps particular regions in their wider national contexts. The project includes chapters on T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Anglo-Irish poet Louis MacNeice, Scottish poets Hugh MacDiarmid and Edwin Muir, and Anglo-Welsh poet David Jones. Taking an archipelagic perspective, I show how these writers variously employ modernist technique to question imperialist, anglocentric, or patriarchal versions of British identity….
My research interests include British modernism and modern poetry; David Jones; Geoffrey Hill; T.S. Eliot; Sylvia Townsend Warner; Louis MacNeice; modernism and national identity; modernism and religion. A native of Toronto, I am currently professor and chair of English at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut.
