Sarah Osment specializes in 20th and 21st century American literature and culture, modern and contemporary poetry and poetics, and environmental literary, material and visual culture. She is at work on a book project that traces the development of aesthetic and political non-representational realism in mid-century America. Drawing on but ultimately moving away from the major sociological and aesthetic theories on the period, she proposes a theory of modernism that focuses on the effort to overcome the arbitrariness of the linguistic sign through a study of several poets, journalists and novelists whose work speaks to questions of profound and strange modes of social and aesthetic relationality.
