We're sharing the contest entries from our Show Us Your Research grad student photo competition.

This photo, entitled "Decolonizing Power" is from Ashley Morford, Department of English. She writes:

My research is driven by the desire to explore decolonizing methodologies.

Currently, I am examining the crossing of British colonial crime fiction and indigenous contemporary crime fiction — particularly, Sherlock Holmes and The Red Power Murders — to see how they can work with and against one another to ultimately serve as decolonizing power.

The Inconvenient Indian and Almanac of the Dead challenge and reconceptualize dominant notions of history and, thus, are influential in shaping and propelling my exploration of the decolonizing potential of crime fiction.
