of the language, world literature and the novel. He is writing a doctoral dissertation examining a dialectic of cultures: specifically world literature and the shifting frame of hermeneutical perspective. The subject area involves defining "World Literature" 

as a concept within a Heideggerian understanding of art and world. Other concerns touched upon in the dissertation are Post-colonial theory, Gadamerian Hermeneutics and Ricourean Hermeneutics.
