Jennifer Marley is a Ph.D. student in the American Studies department at the University of New Mexico. Jennifer entered the program having completed a B.A. with a double major in Native American Studies and American studies from the University of New Mexico (2019). Influenced by her upbringing as a citizen of San Ildefonso Pueblo, Jennifer’s research explores the unique ways heteropatriarchy has manifested in Pueblo communities and how this shapes and reshapes Pueblo Identity and kinship, as well as relationships to the state, other groups. In particular, Jennifer is interested in articulating a Pueblo/a/x feminist lens and contributing to the theoretical frameworks Indigenous feminisms have produced.
