Bradley Dubos is a Provost’s Fellow in Native American Literature and Culture. In 2026, he will transition to the rank of Assistant Professor of English. He is a collaborative faculty member in the American Indian Studies program and a faculty affiliate of the Center for the Study of Religion.

Bradley specializes in pre-1900 U.S. literatures and Native American and Indigenous literatures.
