My name is Léna Remy-Kovach ​[ˈlɛnə ˈrɛmi ˈkoʊvɑk] (she/her). I am a Ph.D. candidate in North American Indigenous Literatures at the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg, in Germany. My doctoral research focuses on the strategies for healing in contemporary horror and fantasy Indigenous wonderworks.

My other projects include the imagery of hunger and cannibalism in contemporary Indigenous horror literature, the commodification of Indigenous monsters in Horror television series, and the use of traditional Euro-American creatures and tropes in modern Horror by Indigenous writers from Turtle Island.


I am currently a Lecturer at the Department of French and Italian Studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. I teach intermediate French language and culture, as well as  Introduction to Literary Analysis. 

I live in Wisconsin, on the traditional Ho-Chunk, Kiikaapoi, Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, Sauk, and Meskwaki territories. I am grateful and honored to live here, and to have the opportunity to work with and for my Indigenous neighbors and landlords.
