Maggie Boyd

I tend to focus on twentieth century American fiction, although I am also deeply interested in contemporary prose and Irish literature. Within that wide variety of texts, I study constructions of gender, narrative voice and memory, as well as the intersection of all three in forming individual and collective identities. I am particularly invested in representations of trauma, illness and mourning.
