I am Associate Professor of English in the School of the Humanities
and Director of the University Core at Fairleigh Dickinson University
- Vancouver Campus. For the Fall of 2011, I was Visiting Professor of
English in the graduate program at Simon Fraser University. For
2006–2008, I was an Assistant Professor (limited term) and SSHRC
Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of English at the University
of Victoria. For part of Fall 2017, I will be Visiting Professor at
the University Toulouse 2 Jean Jaurès. I pursue significant studies
in Music and performance as well.
Beginning, July 1st, 2017, I am transitioning to Director of FDU Press
with editorial offices relocating to FDU's Vancouver campus.
My research interests include Transatlantic Modernism (British, American,
Irish, and Canadian), prose and poetry, media studies, cultural studies,
genetic criticism, anarchism, radical political thought, and opera. I
have particular interests in Lawrence Durrell, Henry Miller, Elizabeth
Smart, T.S. Eliot, Robert Duncan, Aidan Higgins, and related authors.
I recently completed Personal Modernisms: Anarchist Networks and the
Later Avant-Gardes (September 2014) and a critical edition of
Lawrence Durrell's prose, From The Elephant's Back (2015). My
forthcoming monograph project for ELS Editions, A Modernist Fantasy,
relates late modernism, radicalism, and mass media genre fiction of the
1940s through 1980s. I am currently editing the Robert Graves and Aemilia
Laraçuen correspondence, as well as a critical edition of the works
of Edward Taylor Fletcher, a Nineteenth Century Canadian poet, and
philologist. I recently completed a second collection of Durrell's prose,
From a Winter Journal as well. I edited other critical editions of
Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Durrell, Henry Miller, Herbert Read
and Theodore Stephanides, several in open access editions.
