Alex’s research interests include twentieth-century women writers, narrative form and theories of the novel, genre fiction, feminist theory, and global and transnational gender studies. Her dissertation focuses on the intersections between metafiction and genre fiction, particularly in relation to women writers who used supernaturalism to respond to inherited models of realism in the twentieth century.
Alex has taught courses on genre fiction, gender studies, war literature, supernaturalism, eco-criticism, and writing and composition. She also enjoys working as a consultant at the Vanderbilt Writing Studio.
