My research and teaching focuses on Australian literary culture, the relationship between gender and literary value, the intersection between literary and popular cultures of reading, and between literature and politics. My most recent monograph is a study of contemporary writer Amanda Lohrey. Current projects include a study of the impact of COVID-19 on Australian women writers, a collaborative project on the uses of poetry in Australian poitical discourse, and an examination of reading and writing in relation to Australia's high country. 

I am co-editor of Australian Literary Studies.
