Professor Fetta specializes in Chicana/o and Latina/o literatures from a hemispheric perspective Chicana/o and Latina/o literatures are an expression of indigenous, mestizo, and the Euroamerican social fabric of the Americas. She deciphers social systems of oppression through these literatures, and unpacking subaltern literary techniques resistant to hegemonic discourse. Her current scholarship looks at the role of shame as an emotive tool, socially cultivated to control marginalized peoples. Professor Fetta has written on the indigenous in Chicana/o cultural production, the Mexican indigenous, the Filipino in Chicana/o cultural memory, and Chicana/o aesthetic and indigenous spirituality.
Graduate students interested in critical race and ethnic studies are particularly welcome to meet Prof. Fetta to discuss work in progress. For more information, contact Siobhan Senier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
