I teach Native American Literature and Women's Studies, and I have additional research interests in Sustainability/Environmental Studies, Disability Studies, and Digital Humanities. With the help of students, Native American authors, and local colleagues, I edit the website dawnlandvoices.org, a digital literary magazine and archive of Native American literature from New England. The website emerged from a book I edited in 2014, _Dawnland Voices: An Anthology of Writing from Indigenous New England_ (U of Nebraska P). At present I am finishing a book, also to be published with U of Nebraska, called _Sovereignty and Sustainability: Indigenous New England Literary Stewardship in the 20th and 21st Centuries_.
