  • Overview

    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.
