Description of research activities: Like her formal academic training--which synthesized historical, philosophical, and religious studies with literary theory to examine colonial and nineteenth-century American literature–Dr. Keating’s current scholarship is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on issues of contemporary U.S. women of colors, spiritual activism, and social justice.  Dr. Keating has published over sixty articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia articles.  She is the author or editor of seven books, including Women Reading, Women Writing: Revisionist Mythmaking in Paula Gunn Allen (Temple University Press, 1996),  Interviews/Entrevistas (2000); this bridge we call home: radical visions for transformation (Routledge, 2002); EntreMundos/AmongWorlds: New Perspectives on Gloria E. Anzaldúa (Palgrave MacMillan 2005); and Teaching Transformation: Transcultural Classroom Dialogues (Palgrave MacMillan 2007).  Her current research projects focus on two areas: 1) She is editing several books by Gloria Anzaldúa; 2) she is developing a theory of communally-based, multicultural transformation narratives in writings by U.S. women of colors.
