My primary interest is in rethinking questions of theory and interpretation. My most recent book is on the hermeneutics of suspicion as mood and method. My new research is on what I call “technologies of attachment”— how and why we become attached to works of art. I also have longstanding interests in feminism, theories of modernity, and genre (especially tragedy).
