Research Interests: Canon and the classic; cultural theory; human mobility; modernism; administrative and constitutional law; world literatures and theories of interpretation.
Doctoral Research: My doctoral work concerns the classic. Particular areas of focus include the relationship between canon and empire, theories of culture, modes of interpretation and the establishment of value. I also consider the biographical position of critics – such as Charles Sainte-Beuve, T.S. Eliot, Es'kia Mphahlele, Frank Kermode and Ankhi Mukherjee – who have engaged with questions of the classic.
