My research and teaching interests include the 18th- and 19th-century novel, Romantic poetry, Irish and Scottish literature, the Scottish Enlightenment, nationalism in literature, and postcolonial theory. I am currently working on a manuscript on the centrality of the legal fiction of inheritance for the rise of the Scottish and Irish novel of the Romantic period, entitled Fiction of Inheritance: The Case of the British Novel, 1798-1832.
