Following research stays at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo and Yale University, I returned to Ghent as a postdoctoral fellow in English Literature. My research, funded by the Flemish Research Foundation, looks at how modernist literature was shaped by its political context—especially by wars and waning empires. I've written on these topics for both academic and mainstream journals, such as PMLA and the Times Literary Supplement. I currently also help coordinate 20cc and serve as reviews editor for the Journal of European Periodical Studies. Feel free to contact me if there's a book you'd like to review.
