My research interests cluster around American, Irish and Transatlantic Literature and Culture, particularly in relation to questions of migration, diaspora and race. My third monograph, Ireland, Migration and Return Migration: The "Returned Yank" in the Cultural Imagination, 1952 to present is forthcoming with Liverpool UP in March 2019. My second book, the outcome of a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship, is "Other People's Diasporas": Negotiating Race in Contemporary Irish and Irish-American Culture (Syracuse, NY: Syracuse UP, 2013). My first book, Passing into the Present: Contemporary American Fiction of Racial and Gender Passing, appeared wtih Manchester UP in 2010. 

As of January 2019, I am co-editor-in-chief, with Nick Witham, of the Journal of American Studies (Cambridge UP).
