I research Irish and Australian modernism, particularly 1880–1930. I have recently retired as an Emeritus Professor from the University of Otago, New Zealand, where I was the inaugural Eamon Cleary Professor of Irish Studies. I have held posts at the University of Newcastle, Australia; Université de Caen, France; and the University of New South Wales, Australia; and I have been a Visiting Fellow at the Humanities Research Centre at the Australian National University; an Anthony Mason Visiting Fellow at Trinity College, Dublin; and a Visiting Fellow at the Keogh Naughton Institute at Notre Dame (USA).
