Dr. Green-Barteet's primary research areas are 19th-century U.S. literature written by women and contemporary young adult literature. Much of her research focuses on the ways in which female characters transgresssocietal and familial limitations as they claim their own subjectivity. She has published on Harriet Jacobs, Harriet Wilson, Sarah Pogson, and Laura Ingalls Wilder as well as young adult dystopian fiction.
