About Me

I am an Alon Fellow (2008-2011) and Chair of the English Department at the Hebrew University. My articles on modernism have appeared in numerous journals including Journal of Modern Literature, Modern Fiction Studies, Poetics Today, Joyce Studies Annual, Partial Answers, Humanities, and Narrative. I have also contributed chapters to collaborative volumes on Deleuze and Literature, on Deleuze and Beckett, and on Posthumanism. I am the author of The Measureless Time of Joyce, Deleuze and Derrida (2007), and of Fantasies of Self-Mourning: Modernism, the Posthuman and the Finite (2019); and co-editor of two volumes on Flann O'Brien: Flann O’Brien: Contesting Legacies (listed in The Irish Times top 10 non-fiction books of 2014), and Flann O'Brien: Problems with Authority (2017). My research interests include Irish Modernism (especially James Joyce), twentieth-century philosophy (especially the work of Gilles Deleuze), and the influence of Dante on modernist writers.
