Dr. Carey Snyder's areas of specialization are British Modernism and late Victorian literature.
Her first book is entitled British Fiction and Cross-Cultural Encounters: Ethnographic Modernism from Wells to Woolf (2008). She is currently at work on a book that examines how three colonial women writers (Katherine Mansfield, Beatrice Hastings, and Jean Rhys) negotiated their positions in British literary culture in the early twentieth century; the book delves into the gendered and colonial dynamics of these writers' relationships with literary publishers, editors, and small magazines. Dr. Snyder has published articles in journals such as Modern Fiction Studies, Woolf Studies Annual, and The Journal of Modern Periodical Studies. Her essays have also been collected in Harold Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations of Chinua Achebe and Aldous Huxley.
