Her current projects include a comparative study of gendered postcolonial modernity in the work of Australian poet Judith Wright and Canadian artist Emily Carr (with Dorothy Jones); a monograph on Caribbean poet, Kamau Brathwaite; and a study of the impact of poetry on the anti-apartheid movement in Australia and New Zealand.
