Nedelsky's primary interests include human and minority rights, nationalism,
ethnicity, democratization, citizenship, and transitional justice, with an area focus in
Central and Eastern Europe. Her current research explores how the Czechs and Slovaks have
dealt with communist-era secret police files, personnel and informers. This research
contributes to a larger collaborative study comparing transitional justice policies in
post-communist Europe. She has published articles in the journals <i>Ethnic and
Racial Studies</i>, Ethnicities, Nations and Nationalism, and Theory and Society. 

Nedelsky has been teaching at Macalester since 2002.
