Tiffany M. Salter teaches in the Bates Department of English and serves on the program committee for Bates’s American Studies program. For Bates, she has taught courses on Asian American Women Writers, short stories,  science fiction by writers of color, pulp magazines, and animated cartoons. In Winter 2019, she will be teaching a new course on Asian American graphic narrative. Her courses have been cross-listed in Gender and Sexuality Studies and Art and Visual Culture.

Her research focuses on contemporary experimental Asian American and Pacific Islander poetry, fiction, and mixed-genre writing and how those texts address histories of U.S. militarization of Asia and the Pacific.
