My current research centers on questions of method and interpretation. My most recent book The Limits of Critique (Chicago 2015) is on the role of suspicion in literary criticism. I am starting a new project on forms of aesthetic attachment: how and why we get stuck to works of art. I also have longstanding interests in feminist theory, modernity and postmodernity, genre (especially tragedy), comparative literature, and cultural studies.
