Research Interests & Areas

Dr. Marshall's main research focus is settler colonial memory construction of Native American history through U.S. history education. Her book manuscript Teaching Us to Forget: The Wars of Westward Expansion, U.S. History Education, & Public Memory, 1870 - 1995 explores the construction of memory about the wars the U.S. waged against Native Nations in the late nineteenth century. It interrogates the fundamental narrative framing of U.S. history as taught in schools and examines the ongoing and destructive memory work anti-Indigenous textbook narratives perform through secondary history education.

Dr. Marshall also researches historical horse-human relationships with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and decolonial methodologies. Drawing from archival sources, environmental history, ethology, Indigenous sources, and practical research in various traditions of equitation, she investigates events in the history of the U.S. West through a horse-centered lens of analysis.
