20th-century British literature, esp. Woolf; Modernist Women’s Literature; Narratives of the Sea: Melville and Conrad

Dr. Levy is intensely interested in the work of Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Bowen, Katherine Mansfield and Henry James. She is currently working on a manuscript which investigates how class influences the occupation of space and the articulation of working class desire in Virginia Woolf’s shorter fiction. She is also editing a collection of essays which examines the question of provisional bliss in same sex relationships in twentieth century literature. She is an avid glass cockpit aviator and enjoys freshwater and sea kayaking, swimming and caring for greyhounds since they are the latest incarnation of Jane Austen without the fuss.
