I am currently researching twentieth-century Anglophone Welsh literature within the context of modernist studies. My research aims to develop the study of modernism within Anglophone Welsh literature, expanding the field of Welsh Writing in English by re-examining established authors, uncovering neglected authors, and utilising out of print and unpublished texts. By bringing new texts, authors and spaces into modernist studies, I aim to challenge metropolitan and Anglo-centric models of the field.
My primary research interests are of course Welsh Writing in English and literary modernisms, but in addition to these I am interested in 20th Century British, Irish and American literatures, approaches to minority Anglophone literatures (such as post-colonialism, processes of forming national traditions, models of comparative study), issues of cultural, national and individual identity in response to modernity, war-writing, and literary production and networks in the 20th century.
