I am an Assistant Professor of English and Director of the University Core at Fairleigh
Dickinson University, Vancouver. 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.
I pursue significant studies in Music as well.
My research interests include Transatlantic Modernism (British, American, Irish, and Canadian), prose
and poetry, 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 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, philologist, and Surveyor General of
Québec. I recently completed a critical edition of Oscar Wilde's 1890 version of
The Picture of Dorian Gray in conjunction with a facsimile edition, both of which
are released under a Creative Commons license for free non-commercial and non-profit
use. My scholarly editions of Lawrence Durrell's
novels Pied Piper of Lovers and Panic Spring were published by ELS Editions
in 2008. I also completed a scholarly edition of the Henry Miller and Herbert
Read correspondence (2007), which focused on anarchist influences on English Surrealism.
I also study Restoration musical theatre and opera.
