My areas of teaching and research are Modernism (Literature & Art) and various forms of Twentieth Century Autobiography.

Recently, I have been researching and publishing on interrelationships between the visual arts, music and literature, both in Europe from the 1920s-1940s and within the New York School of the 1950s-1970s.

My fiction, poetry, and translations appear in national and international journals and magazines.
