My research focuses on race theory and contemporary U.S. literature, including transpacific and transborder narratives. Currently, for my dissertation, I am investigating the resonances between and imbrications of differently raced subjects and their narrative productions. Specifically, I examine the effects of Spanish and U.S. colonialism upon raced subjects and their environments across Asian American and Latinx literature and art objects. I pay particular attention to the
multisensory, affective experiences of these subjects, their parahuman orientations, material transfigurations, and trajectories divergent from the projects of empire.
