Professor Galbusí scholarship combines three overlapping areas: American literature, autobiography, and African American literature since the Black Arts Movement. She has recently presented papers at conferences such as the Modern Language Association, Furious Flower (2004), and the American Literature Association. Recent publications appear in Edith Wharton Review and Obsidian III. She was the keynote speaker for the International American Studies Conference, hosted by Minsk State Linguistic University and the Department of State in Belarus in 2003.

Dr. Galbus earned her doctorate in American literature at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Her dissertation examined five twentieth-century American women writers who critiqued Plato's philosophy through literature. Previously, she earned master's degrees in literature and philosophy from Marquette University, and a bachelorís degree in philosophy with Spanish and literature minors from St. Maryís University of Minnesota.

When she has a chance, she loves to travel both domestically and abroad. She has visited more than a dozen countries in North America and Europe.
