Her research and teaching interests include Indigenous literatures, science fiction, comics, formal and generic experimentation, 20th and 21st century American literature, gender studies, and Native American studies. Her current book project, The Sovereign Other, examines the ways that American Indian and First Nations novelists have adapted the generic tropes of science fiction as a means of resisting cultural assimilation and reasserting the value of Indigenous knowledges in the twenty-first century.
