I lecture on English Literature (primarily fiction) and Irish Studies at NUIM.
Impure Thoughts, my study of Catholicism, sexuality and modernity in the twentieth-century Irish bildungsroman, was published by Manchester UP in 2012.
Along with essays on Irish twentieth-century fiction I’ve also written on gender and sexual politics in contemporary Irish culture. I’m currently working on a study of the male body and the homoerotic, and its connection with ideas about modernity and revolution, in Irish writing from Roger Casement and Padraig Pearse to the contemporary gay novel.
My main areas of interest are Irish Studies; Gender and Sexuality Studies; history of the novel; Queer Theory; Marxist literary theory.
