Professor Sutton’s first project, Catholic Modernists, English Nationalists, discusses the influence of Catholic thought on English modernism and examines the work of Catholic converts who shaped the aesthetics and politics of the modernist period. The book connects the recusant Catholics in England to modernist converts. Chapters focus on Gerard Manley Hopkins, Ford Madox Ford, T. S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, and Graham Greene. Dr. Sutton is now working on a project that analyzes the Aristotelian foundations of modernist approaches to leisure.
