Current Research

I just completed a book called "Jane Austen and the Price of Happiness." It looks at Austen's relationship to the marriage plot both in her time and in the current popular imagination.

 

I have done considerable research on sentimentalism and sensibility as a cross-cultural movement in Europe. I've made similar studies of intellectual history and literature in Meiji Japan, focusing on the author Natsume Sôseki.

My interest in the intersection of philosophy, film, and fiction has taken me to a book-length manuscript on Cowboys and Samurai: Authority, Nation-Making, and Individualism, and well as to many studies of Austen adaptations.
