Biography


Andi Remoquillo is a graduate student in American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research analyzes the ways in which gender and sexuality further shapes the Colonial Mentalities (CM) of Filipina/Filipina-American women in the contemporary U.S. Andi’s research is situated within the belief that through a (re)understanding of CM through gendered and sexualized lenses can more nuanced methods of decolonization ensue. Through the use of discourse/content analyses and interviews, Andi’s current research expands upon her previous graduate work by taking an intersectional, transnational feminist approach when deconstructing contemporary notions of race, gender, sexuality, nationality, and belonging/(un)belonging.

Andi received her B.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies and Psychology at DePaul University where she also earned her M.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies. Additionally, she spent the last academic year teaching courses on Women’s and Gender Studies, Multiculturalism, Identity, and Social Justice (DePaul) before joining the American Studies department at U.T. as a doctoral student.
