Research Topic

Author, Reviewer and Translator: Katherine Mansfield's Place in Literary Culture

Research Summary

My research focuses on extending and revising current assessments of Katherine Mansfield's (1888 - 1923) engagement with literary culture and the literary marketplace. I will be combining close attention to the compositional and publication histories of her texts with an analysis of the works in their original sites of publication in order to access their contemporary cultural and political meanings.

My research will capitalise on a recent upsurge of interest in Mansfield's work by offering the most comprehensive assessment to date of her role as a professional author, editor, reviewer and translator.
