About Gráinne Sexton

Student of English Literature and History at Trinity College Dublin. My research explores the nature of borders and boundaries in the literature of Native American communities, with a particular focus on the work of contemporary author Leslie Marmon Silko. The project has thus far involved collaboration with leading scholars of Native American studies from across the United Kingdom and United States. I am additionally writing a final-year dissertation on Indigenous strategies of resistance to environmental injustice in the work of Silko.
