I work in Postcolonial Literature and Irish Studies, with a secondary emphasis in South Asian Studies. But I also do work concerning power interactions (class / gender / nation-state) in literature and the intersection of religion and literature. I’m currently working on a book-length reference project on Derek Walcott. I teach a variety of classes, from world literature to graduate seminars on James Joyce and Seamus Heaney.
