Current research focuses on the literature and culture of the Spanish Civil War, and especially on the question of memorializing the international volunteers in Canada, Britain, the united States, and elsewhere. I have written extensively on the genre of elegy and the "work of mourning" in both poetry and prose memoir and am especially interested in issues related to the remembrance and commemoration of war. I am also completing a book on George Orwell and his relationship to literary modernism and am interested in all issues pertaining to Orwell and his work.
