Talty featured in Boston Globe discussing Indigenous authors
Morgan Talty, associate professor of English at the University of Maine, spoke to the Boston Globe about the shift in literary representation of Indigenous authors. “The literary critic Louis Owens said non-Native readers of Indigenous fiction come to the page expecting a comfortable tour of Indian country. I feel like we have at last moved away from that. Now there are Indigenous stories that aren’t about Indian country but are more about specific tribes, which is what we need considering there are more than 500 federally recognized tribes,” Talty said.
