I am an Associate Professor in the Department of English and Modern Languages at Georgia Southwestern State University, where I teach courses in Irish, British, and Postcolonial literatures. My research focuses primarily on the construction of imaginary spaces in mid-20th century Irish poetry; I also have a side interest in fantasy literature. I have published articles on W.B. Yeats, Richard Murphy, Louis MacNeice, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
