My work focuses on contemporary American experimental poetry. My current research project is about reading experimental US poetry with a focus on emotion. I have been writing, for instance, about conceptual and post-conceptual poetry with reference to emotion. My book, Experimentalism as Reciprocal Communication in Contemporary American Poetry: John Ashbery, Lyn Hejinian, Ron Silliman came out from John Benjamins in 2016. The book presents a way of reading these poets’ work as reciprocal communication, where meaning-making happens in the community of readers, writers, and texts. Published in the FILLM Studies in Languages and Literatures series, the book is aimed at a double audience: those who are experts in contemporary poetry but also for others scholars and students who may not know about experimental poetry but are nevertheless interested in findings in the field.
