My research focuses on oil in American fiction from the beginning of the twentieth century. I examine the ways in which early imaginaries of oil render extraction zones at the periphery of an emerging fossil fuel-based economy. In my dissertation, The Regional Imaginations of the Early American Oil Extraction Novel, 1900-1945, I inspect how novels register the environmental and social changes around extraction sites in distinct regions. I am part of the ERC-funded research project "Off the Road: The Environmental Aesthetics of Early Automobility."
