I am an international student from Belgium working on my dissertation in the interdisciplinary fields of Indigenous Studies and American Studies at the University of Washington English department in Seattle. I received my MA in English Literature and Linguistics and my MBA in Cultural Management from the University of Antwerp, Belgium. My research argues that Indigenous ways of knowing offer under-considered analytical tools for reading across the entire terrain of U.S. literature, especially in the second half of the 20th century. I have volunteered with the Quinault Indian Nation Elder program in different capacities since 2014, and am now working specifically on an intergenerational digital oral history project with the Quinault elder program and the Taholah high school. I teach undergraduate courses at the University of Washington in Native American literatures and research methods.

As Ian mentioned, at the University of Washington (and with the generous support of the Mellon Foundation), we are placing doctoral students into mentoring collaborations with two-year college faculty in Seattle. It would be difficult to overstate how transformative this experience has been […]
