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.
