Emma Mason, Bloomsbury 2014). My monograph engages with representations of the contemporary metropolis in fictions by selected British women writers.

My research interests also include Christian spirituality, psychoanalytical and postcolonial theory. A specific line in my research tackled the problem of literary dystopia and its various forms, from the more conventional political dystopia to more subtle psychological varieties.
