She teaches courses in Chicano/a and U.S. Latino/a literature, women’s literature (with an emphasis on literature written by women of color), feminist theory, African-American literature, multicultural pedagogy, and U.S multi-ethnic literature. She serves on the steering committee for the NAU Program in Women’s Studies and is an active member of the American Studies Association, MELUS (The Society for the Study of Multi-ethnic Literature), and MLA.
