Lecturing Fellow in the Thompson Writing Program
My research interests are contemporary American literature and critical race theory. I have recently completed a book called LatinAsian Cartographies: History, Writing, and the National Imaginary, which examines how Asian American and Latina/o literature rewrites dominant narratives of U.S. history. My next project will explore what I call “ethnofuturism,” or alternative speculative fiction by writers of color. Other areas of interest include the medical humanities, women’s and gender studies, and literature and the environment.
