Research Interests

I specialise in American and British literature from the 20th and 21st centuries, with a focus on experimental and Late Modernist poetry from 1945. My monograph-in-progress, Sounding the Room of British Poetry: Internationalising Community in the School of Bob Cobbing, is a literary history of the international poetic and avant-garde from 1945-2008, as seen through the institutional commitments that defined the careers of a range of 20th century poets, artists, filmmakers, musicians and BBC producers. In addition, I am undertaking practice-led research into the relationship between diaspora cultures, community organisation and the European avant-garde.
