Anton's primary research interest, the study of selfhood through literary and non-literary texts, outlines a broad (and diverse) landscape. 

His MA thesis examined two novels by Charles Brockden Brown. In that, he mainly focused on the disruptions and apparent flaws of the texts in their implications on Brown's implicit vision of the emerging American nation and the individuals comprising it. In his doctoral studies, he is looking to launch similar inquiries on additional Early American texts and settings.
