Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in American Literature and Culture in the School of Art, Media and American Studies. In broad terms, my research and teaching activities focus on a wide range of interdisciplinary postwar and contemporary texts, from texts published in the 1950s to texts published in the twenty-first century. My Ph.D study at the University of Glasgow examined first-person narratives of female adolescence in American fiction published after 1950. I have published several articles on this area, and my monograph, Developing Figures: Adolescence, America and Postwar Fiction, was published by Palgrave in 2009. I have also published American Autobiography (Edinburgh University Press, 2012) and In Different Rooms: Representations of Anne Frank in American Literature (Routledge, 2016).
