Research Areas

creative writing, Chicanx literatures, theories of the body


My research concentrations include creative writing (fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry) crafted through the lens of social justice and decolonizing storytelling. Another concentration is literatures and cultural rhetorics, wherein I focus on Chicanx/Latinx and Indigenous literatures, land-based literatures, as well food, feminisms, and rhetoric. My other research concentrations center on diasporic and border theories, women of color feminisms, theories of the body, and affect theory.
