His research and teaching interests include the novel, comparative literature, modernism, gay and lesbian studies, Irish literature, western European literature, Latin American literature, and world literature.

McCrea is the author of three books: Languages of the Night, winner of the American Comparative Literature Association’s René Wellek prize for the best book of 2016; In the Company of Strangers, which was awarded the Heyman prize for scholarship in the humanities; and a novel, The First Verse, which won a number of awards including the Ferro-Grumley prize for fiction and a Barnes and Noble “Discover” prize.
