Research Area: Postwar American Literature, Postmodern Fiction, Literary Theory and Criticism

I work in the area of postwar American literature. In particular, I am interested in authors who have a postmodern/poststructuralist bend in their writings. This intersection is important because one can distinctly mark the interface between literature and literary theory.
