Jedediah Kuhn teaches courses in Women and Gender Studies and History in the Department of Historical Studies. His research examines the intersections of race, indigeneity, gender, and sexuality in the U.S. West and U.S.-Mexico borderlands.

His forthcoming book manuscript, tentatively titled Indigenous Intimacies: Native Americans and Mexican Americans Since 1848, explores how race intersects with indigeneity through a comparative look at the experiences of Native Americans and Mexican Americans in Nevada and California. Drawing on an interdisciplinary archive of historical documents and literary texts, he looks for traces of intimacy between the two groups—moments of sex, family belonging, and even violence that speak to how these groups overlap.
