research overview

  • My research interests lie primarily in the broad field of modern and contemporary literary and cultural studies. I am currently exploring select developments in contemporary literary theory in relation to the influence of the natural sciences on modern and contemporary literature, and more generally, the ethos of cultural modernity in so far as such an outlook may be inferred from various literary and artistic productions of the past two centuries. In that connection, I have sought to trace in my most recent publications and conference presentations a genealogy of the imagination as that faculty has evolved in the midst of the technocultural context of urban modernity, while in my ongoing book project I am reflecting upon aesthetic implications of the concept of “mutability” in 19th and 20th century literature, science and the arts.
