I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. My PhD project focuses on re-imaginations of law, violence, and justice in Indigenous fiction and my research interests are Indigenous studies, de- and anti-colonial studies, feminist theory, critical legal studies, and critical ethnic studies. I am the author of “Neoliberal Violence: Colonial Legacies and Imperialist Strategies of the Contemporary Western Adventure” (2018) published in the Journal of Popular Culture. I have also presented at international conferences, such as the annual meetings of the National Popular Culture and American Culture Association, the Northeastern Modern Language Association, the Critical Ethnic Studies Association, and the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association.
While my dissertation project focuses on (re-)imaginations of law, violence, and justice through Indigenous women’s literatures, my publications and conference participations have explored various topics in the fields of Indigenous studies and critical ethnic studies.
