Research interests

I am interested in supervising in the areas of poetry and poetics, modernism, Australian literature, feminist literary studies, theories of literary formation (collaboration, coterie, community, and network), literary archives, mid to late nineteenth and twentieth-century women's writing, and cross-disciplinary creative partnerships.

I have supervised Masters and PhD theses in the following areas: 19th and 20th century Australian poetry, 20th century American poetry, 20th century British women's poetry, Australian modernism and the novel, Gothic women's writing, cyberpunk and the posthuman, representations of disability in children's literature, representations of transgender in children's literature, and post-2011 novel and trauma.

Awards

I have been a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow, a Monash Fellow, and a Macquarie University Fellow. My book, Stressing the Modern: Cultural Politics in Australian Womens Poetry (2007) was shortlisted for the Walter McRae Russell Award in 2009 and the NSW Premiers Prize for Literary Scholarship in 2008. I have also had poetry manuscripts shorted listed for the biennial Helen Bell Bequest Award and the Whitmore Press Manuscript Prize.

Projects

I am completing a study of the interaction between (predominantly women) writers and artists associated with the New York School from the mid 40s to mid 60s. I am also in the formative stages of mapping and theorizing the production, dissemination, and reception of Australian poetry from 1965 onwards. Lastly, I am developing a project that considers Australian modernist work through a transnational lens but beyond overt itineraries of influence.
