My scholarly research focuses on the literary and cultural aftermath of World War One in Europe and the United States, and the work of writers including Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, Edith Wharton, Rudyard Kipling, and Siegfried Sassoon. Rooted in cultural memory approaches, my PhD dissertation “Memorial Modernisms: Remembering the Dead in British Literature and Culture was supervised by Sarah Cole, Marianne Hirsch, and David Damrosch at Columbia University and awarded in May 2010.
