Research and Grants

My primary research areas are Periodical and 'Little Magazine' Studies, Digital Humanities, and the global networks of literature, visual art, history, and cultural production that flourished between 1850 and the present day. 

I have particular interests in transnational modernist literatures, Asian-American fiction, the Japanese 'I novel', interactions between American modernism and Latin American modernismo, and Caribbean/ Harlem Renaissance interchanges. I also explore intersections between periodical culture and Medical Humanities and Interdisciplinary Approaches to literature. 

Current and previous research grants include:

  • 2022-24 Printed Matters: Representations of the Caribbean in Periodicals
    PI: Louise Kane, Co-PI: Liz Hopwood, Loyola Chicago 
    This project will create a database of early periodical articles that discussed Caribbean literature and history. The project is funded by the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals' Field Development Grant, which was awarded in 2022. 
  • 2021 Lillian Gary Taylor Fellowship in American Literature, the University of Virginia.
  • 2019-20 Literature, the Consoler: Modernism, Medical Humanities, and Mental Health
    PI: Louise Kane 
    This interdisciplinary series of lecture-workshops ran throughout the pandemic and asked the general public to consider how modernist writers and their work can play a positive role in overcoming mental health struggles. The project was funded by a Florida Humanities Council Community Project Grant, which was in part funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
