In her research and teaching, Mathilde Roza centralizes issues of cultural diversity and cultural contact, as well as the impact of social and political dimension on the production of cultural work. One of her fields of expertise is North American Indigenous and Decolonial Studies. Next to work on Indigenous literature and visual art, she is currently working on several projects related to the participation of Indigenous soldiers in the military, including a large project to identify and describe the life stories and contributions of North American Indigenous soldiers in the Netherlands during World War II. As part of these projects, she curated the exhibition "Albert & Theo: A Social Friendship" in the Freedom Museum, Groesbeek, and is currently preparing a large overview exhibition that will coincide with the 80th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands. Another field of expertise is American literary modernism, especially the work of the avant-garde author Robert M. Coates (1897-1973). Mathilde was board member of the Netherlands American Studies Association (NASA) from 2009 to 2014, and Secretary of the Association of Canadian Studies in the Netherlands (ACSN) from 2015 to 2018.
