Professional Statement

I arrived at U.C. Berkeley in the fall of 2006 after finishing my Ph.D. at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (May 2006).  My book on contemporary Irish poetry, Continuity and Change in Irish Poetry, 1966-2010, appeared in 2012 (Cambridge University Press).  My second book, The Cambridge Introduction to British Poetry, 1945-2010, was published in November 2015.  I'm beginning work on a third book project, tentatively titled Poetry's Musics, on the conjunctions and disjunctions between poetry and music in 19th- and 20th-century British and Irish literature.
