Research interests

My main publications have been in the area of contemporary American writing, and, more specifically, on the relationship between history and fiction. I have published articles in the Journal of American Studies; the European Journal of American Culture; Literature and History, and the European Journal of American Studies. I have reviewed for Modern Fiction Studies, Impact, College Literature, the Journal of American Studies, and the European Journal of American Culture.  My book, American Postmodernist Fiction and the Past, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2011.  I am currently researching literary representations of vegetarianism.
