My early training and interest in narrative, first acquired through a French Department, is still a key element ofo my work, as I have published two bilingual anthologies of Arapaho narratives, and have another forthcoming on Gros Ventre narratives, with a third Arapaho anthology under preparation. All of the anthologies include extensive introductions to the texts, informed by scholarly approaches in Ethnopoetics and Performance Studies. I see the Arapaho trilogy as a key component of linguistic documentation, with the three volumes covering traditional myths, nineteenth-century historical narratives, and twentieth-century reservation era narratives respectively. In addition to the anthologies, I have published several articles and studies focused on narrative, and am currently working especially on collaborative narratives and emergent narrative in conversation, with inspiration from Conversation Analysis.
