    Personal profile


    My core research centres upon race and resistance in the Americas, with a particular emphasis placed upon Indigenous power and histories. As a historian and interdisciplinary scholar, I am particularly interested in violence as a formative source of intra-societal change. I am also deeply interested in exploring Indigenous knowledge bases and developing methodologies to facilitate their dissemination. My recent book, Native American Racism in the Age of Donald Trump: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives (Palgrave Macmillan), explores the relationship between historic ethno-racial processes and the making of the Trump administration (and the era of Trumpism). I am currently engaged in a range of interdisciplinary and intercultural projects related to Indigenous peoples and knowledge in Brazil. My recent articles on this topic include "Assessing the Impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous Communities in Latin America"; “Indigenous Education and Intercultural Dialogue”; and “Indigenous Peoples and Sustainable Development”.  My next book is due in 2024 from University of Britsol Press.


    I am also very interested in using non-traditional mediums to disseminate my research. Aside from the written word, I have experimented with trans-media articles (open access pieces that include filmic elements, audio commentaries, and digital appendices), podcasts, micro-blogging, filmmaking, and immersive content creation, etc. These works range from academic in nature (aimed at a scholarly audience) to public outreach, wherein accessibility is an important consideration.
