The Stenographic Imagination: Office Work and the Work of Literature in Modern Britain

My book in progress, The Secretarial Imagination, brings literary criticism together with business history and media studies to explore the representation (and occlusion) of clerical work in modern literature, criticism, and social theory. Topics covered range from the politics of the phonetic alphabet to the prehistory of books on tape; authors discussed include Dickens, James, Stoker, Conan Doyle, Allen, Forster, Christie, Q.D. Leavis, and Stevie Smith.
