I teach courses on modernisms and 20th-century Anglophone literature with occasional forays into film. I have written essays on the late-Victorian political economist J.A. Hobson, the mid-century novelist Doris Lessing, and most recently on modernist theories of the novel, “The Prosaics of Weak Grammar” (NOVEL: A Forum on Fiction 56:3). I am currently at work on my book manuscript on the Anglophone hegemony, i.e. linguistic transformation and the rise of mass culture in and through the British Empire.
