Her major research interests are in post-1900 and contemporary literature and culture, as well as theoretical readings of literature generally. She has a longstanding focus on the inter-art analogy and inter-disciplinary studies. In particular, the relationship between writing and the visual arts; the gaze in painting and literature; contemporary architectural spaces and their embodiments; the interplay of trauma, cultural memory and the city; textual, artistic and urban horizons of biopolitics, biosociality and the body; the phenomenology of vulnerability.
