Ann Martin has written on Canadian and Anglo-American modernism for journals such as Canadian Literature and Woolf Studies Annual. Her interests in cultural studies, gender performance, and children’s literature are reflected in her book, Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in Bed (2006), which addresses the significance of fairy tales in the prose of James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Djuna Barnes. Currently, she is researching Dorothy L. Sayers as part of a larger project on the role of the automobile in works of British modernism.
