Tarren Andrews

Tarren Andrews joins Yale as Assistant Professor in the Program in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. Her scholarship employs critical Indigenous studies to (re)evaluate and (re)narrativize histories of the early medieval North Atlantic (pre-1100). Her forthcoming book takes a transtemporal approach to law and literature, examining textual and material artifacts from the early medieval North Atlantic to better understand the earliest formations of Anglophone settler colonial logics as they are manifested in U.S. and Canadian settler law. In addition to this upcoming monograph, she contributed the opening lines (ln. 1-12) in the 2021 translation of Beowulf by All. The citation for this translation includes the Flathead Indian Reservation where Andrews grew up, which she credited as a co-author to honor the relationship between land and language. Andrews received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She has graduate certificates in Native American and Indigenous Studies; Culture, Language, and Social Practice; and College Teaching.
