My research looks at the influence of philosophical pragmatism on the representation of consciousness in U.S. literature. I have published scholarly articles in Studies in the Novel and the aesthetics journal Style, among others, and have an essay in Emily Dickinson and Philosophy, from Cambridge University Press. I have also written book reviews for the TLS, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Please visit the QU English Department website:
