I work on 20th and 21st century Anglophone literature, with special interests in poetry and poetics, Jewish fiction, border studies and transnationalism, kinship and queer theory, and empire and settler-colonialism. My dissertation is on the Anglophone literary history of Zionism in the long 20th century and the appearances and occlusions within it of the Palestinian Nakba.
