Researcher's projects

My research and teaching focuses on literary culture at the turn of the twentieth century, especially that written and read in Australia, and the intersection between literary and popular cultures of reading, especially as mediated by newspapers and libraries. I am currently working on two projects: a book-length study of popular fiction in the early 20th Century through the lense of regional Australian readers and their library borrowing and a study of book reviewing in Australia from 1985-present.

I am also editor of Australian Literary Studies.
