Interests

Primary Areas: Gender and sexuality studies (feminist, queer, and postcolonial approaches); critical race studies; globalization and South Asia; global literary and media cultures.

Secondary Areas: Postmodern autobiography and fiction; postmodern theory; visual cultures.

Scholarly Projects

I am currently at work on two separate projects: an article-length study, which situates the rise of liberal white masculinity as a problematic response to feminist and queer interventions; and a proposed manuscript on globalization as a key lens through which to engage gerontological studies.
