My interests include: global South studies; Indigenous studies and decolonial thought; climate fiction; disability studies; extraction and the energy humanities; extinction; oceanic studies; MELUS; history and theory of the novel. My current research examines literary representations of climate change in contemporary environmental fiction from the global and regional South and develops a decolonial approach to disaster studies.
