Alison’s first monograph, The Literary Afterlives of Roger Casement, 1899-2016 (Liverpool University Press, 2020), explored the literary afterlives of the Irish nationalist Roger Casement (1864-1916), across a selection of twentieth and twenty-first century literature. Drawing upon a transnational selection of modern and contemporary texts, alongside significant archival research, this book positions Casement as a vital and fascinating figure in the compromised and contradictory terrain of Anglo-Irish history.

Alison has written about Casement for the Irish Historians in Britain; Modernism/modernity; New Hibernia Review and the Irish Times.
