My research focuses primarily on the female expatriate literary communities of early twentieth-century Paris. Figures include women such as Sylvia Beach, Gertrude Stein, Natalie Barney, H.D., Djuna Barnes, and Janet Flanner. I look at how issues of gender, economics, and sexuality all work together in the communities these women established and maintained between the World Wars. I am also interested in American women’s literature, global women's literature, American cultural studies, and gender studies.
