- Robinson and race;
- Robinson’s role as a public intellectual;
- Literary review culture, prize giving, and the production of “literary” fiction via the Iowa Writers’ Workshop;
- Robinson’s engagement with history, particularly the ongoing relevance of the American Civil War, Reconstruction, and/or Civil Rights Movement to her work;
- Robinson and US intellectual history.
