My research focuses on the interface between literature and psychoanalysis, and I am particularly interested in the political and psychic investments that have been made, since the late 19th century, in reading, writing and playing as constituents of identity. Adolescence has consistently been an axiomatic term within my work, because of its cultural purchase as a transitional or borderline category. Other key research interests include children’s fiction,  domestic space, twinship, and representations of trauma.
