Thea Quiray Tagle
Visiting Faculty
History and Theory of Contemporary Art

Thea Quiray Tagle researches Filipino/American social movements and the production of postcolonial subjectivities in visual cultural productions, performance, and literature. She also specializes in Third World and women of color feminisms, critical geography, film studies, and queer theory. Quiray Tagle is currently completing her dissertation, an exploration of contemporary Filipino/American cultural works that materially and metaphorically remap networks of kinship and identity in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. She has been involved with social justice organizations in New York, San Diego, and the Philippines, and is excited to now be building a community in the Bay Area.
