Dr. Angela Calcaterra specializes in early American literature and Native American literatures, with a particular focus on the ways indigenous literary practices unsettle traditional narratives of American history and culture. Her completed book manuscript explores the intersections between Native and Euro-American aesthetic practices in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and rethinks the "literary" from Native perspectives. Her articles have appeared or are forthcoming in Early American Literature, Studies in American Indian Literatures, and Writing About Time: Essays on American Literature (forthcoming from Cambridge University Press). She enjoys teaching courses on early American literature and culture, contemporary and historical Native American literatures, and the intellectual and aesthetic traditions of the Atlantic world. Dr. Calcaterra received her Ph.D. in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012. Before joining the UNT faculty she was an Assistant Professor of English at the University of West Florida.
