Author and Topic Bibliographies

Bibliographies posted on the ASAIL website are intended to serve as resources to students and scholars of American Indian Literatures–novices and seasoned veterans alike. To that end, each bibliography should contain a brief overview of the author’s life and work, along with any significant critical debates pertaining to each. This overview should be followed by a list of the author’s publications and significant secondary resources.

If you are interested in writing a bibliography about an American Indian writer who does not yet have one on the site, please email Tereza Szeghi.
