My teaching and research is focused on Modern British, Irish and American Literature, Drama, Psychoanalysis and Cultural Theory. Currently, I am working on a book-length project exploring the historical and philosophical underpinnings of Camp in modernism (Camp as in “How campy, dahling!”). I have chapters forthcoming on Lacan and the Posthuman, Lynda Barry and Art Education, Blanchot, Lacan and the Death Drive, and Wyndham Lewis’ closet drama Enemy of the Stars. I am also working on An Encyclopedia of Cultural Theory for the University of Toronto Press.
