Current Project: Dissertation, Twenty-First Century Indigenous North American Gothic (AT)

Focusing primarily on Indigenous-authored fiction published in the twenty-first century, this project explores the presence of figures, themes, and tropes associated with various types of Gothic fiction in these texts. Under its working title "Twenty-First Century Indigenous North American Gothic," the aim of this project is not to outline a singular "new" form of the mode, but rather to examine the myriad ways in which these works (re)envision terror, horror, and the supernatural.
