Andi Remoquillo

Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in American Studies

Specializes in gender and Filipinx American history, Asian American Studies, feminist approaches to oral histories and critical ethnography

Andi Remoquillo is the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in American Studies at Wellesley College. She is interested in the ways in which second generation Filipina/x Americans grapple with notions of community, home, belonging, and reclaiming memory as they cultivate their own understandings of Fil-Am identity. She is currently working on a book manuscript that brings together oral history, ethnography, and socio-cultural history that showcases the ways in which the twentieth-century Fil-Am diaspora in Chicago began with Filipina women and was upheld by second generation women whose liminal positioning(s) bridged ontological gaps between pre and post 1965 Filipinx immigrant histories.
Before arriving at Wellesley, Andi taught courses on the intersections of gender and Asian American history; transnational feminisms; and social identity and social movements in the United States. She is currently teaching AMS151T: The Asian American Experience, and she is also interested in working with students in workshops or classes as they learn more about Asian American and feminist research methodologies, the Filipinx American diaspora, and Asian American history.
Andi continues to present her work at the Association for Asian American Studies and the American Studies Association's annual conferences, and give lectures on topics pertaining to the Filipinx American diasporas, current events in Asian America, and Asian American history.
