My research primarily focuses on the intersections of science, technology, and global modernism. My dissertation, “The Science of Sound: The Impact of Sound Recording on Vanguard Narrative Form,” is a comparative study of Irish and Latin American modernisms and the literary responses to the advent of recorded sound. I focus on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman, Leopoldo Lugones’s short stories “La fuerza omega” and “Yzur,” and Jaime Torres Bodet’s novel Proserpina rescatada.

My current research examines literary magazines circulating between 1900 and 1930 in English in the United States and England, and those in Spanish published in Latin America. I use translators and translated pieces as a proxy for transnational exchange to look at literary modernisms as a global phenomenon.
