Amy's research focuses on literary subjectivity in Japanese and Latin American literature from the late-nineteenth through early-twentieth centuries, particularly as manifest in the Japanese shishousetsu and modernismo in Latin America. Drawing from a main corpus consisting of authors such as José Asunción Silva, Tayama Katai, Aurora Cáceres, Tamura Toshiko, Roberto Arlt, and Shiga Naoya, her work seeks to interrogate at once the notion of the world (and world literature) and the subject within. Her principle theoretical interests include phenomenology and Marxist theory. Amy has been a co-organizer of the Feminist Reading Group, open to graduate students and faculty at NYU and neighboring institutions, since 2015.
