Research interests

My research is on print and literary cultures in North America and Britain in the early to mid twentieth century. I have particular specialisms in:

  • Periodical Studies
  • Modernism and Middlebrow Culture
  • Canadian Studies

Writing

In 2016 I published my sixth monograph, Modernism's Print Cultures (Bloosmbury), with Mark Hussey. My previous books include two prize-winning monographs, Sophistication: A Literary and Cultural History (2010), winner of the European Society for the Study of English (ESSE)'s biannual book prize in English Literature, and Literary Culture and Female Authorship in Canada (2003), winner of the International Council for Canadian Studies' Pierre Savard Award. My current writing project is a co-authored article on US and Canadian magazine cultures (with H. McGregor).

Collaborative projects

In 2008, I set up the AHRC Middlebrow Network, which now has close to 400 members. Several of my later projects developed from the Network: for instance, "Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture in Canada", funded by the AHRC, and involving collaboration with the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC). A related project that I was a CI on is "Modern Magazines Project Canada", led by Hannah McGregor and funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

I am currently working on a collaborative project on Noël Coward, building on the research I did during my British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship (2015) on "Noël Coward, Print Culture and Popularity". Another current project is an edition of a novel, The Young May Moon, by Canadian author Martha Ostenso; this is funded by a Carnegie Trust Research Incentive Grant.  I am also involved in a collaboration with Strathclyde Business School and the Glasgow Women's Library, on research about libraries as transformative spaces. With Justus Liebig University Gießen in Germany, I am establishing an international research group on Transnational Middlebrow Cultures.

Selected scholarly activities
