I have taught several courses--undergraduate, graduate, and as a summer seminar at the National Humanities Center--concerning the globalization of American studies and global conceptions of the modern and modernist novel. I have also received a Fulbright award to lecture for a year on U.S. law and literature in Syria. Much of my written work concerns international conceptions of American studies: including my monograph _Our Conrad: American Transnational Self-Imaginings, 1914-1939_ (Stanford UP 2007); my co-edited volume (with Carola Kaplan and Andrea White) Corad in the Twenty-First Century: Contemporary Approaches and Perspectives (Routledge 2005); and my essay "Faulkner's Indians, or the Poetics of Cannibalism" (Faulkner Journal, 2003). I am also the editor of four (American) Modern Library editions of the international novelist Joseph Conrad's novels; the ongoing editor of a fifth Conrad text for Cambridge University Press; and a member and frequent speaker at several international Conrad organizations, including those in Canada/US, the UK, France, and Poland.
