My main areas of interest are in literature and the Bible, Englishness, and literature and place. My most recent work is on Englishness and simplicity. I am also interested in the workings of ritual and place in religious and national identities (especially in relation to the Jewish festival Purim). Carrying on work already done on the biblical Book of Esther, I am also working on a book on female biblical figures in Victorian literature.
