Research

My research project investigates the representations of and resistance to violence against Indigenous women in Louise Erdrich’s (Ojibwe) The Round House, Frances Washburn’s (Lakota / Anishinaabe) Elsie’s Business, Eden Robinson’s (Haisla / Heiltsuk) Monkey Beach, and Katherena Vermette’s (Métis) The Break. More broadly, my research interests are Indigenous literatures, critical ethnic studies, decolonial studies, critical legal studies, feminist theories, as well as gender and queer studies.

While my dissertation project focuses on the representation of and resistance to violence against Indigenous women in Indigenous women’s literatures, my publications and conference participations have explored various topics in the fields of Indigenous studies and critical ethnic studies.
