    Biography

    Dr. Quintana's publications include articles on multicultural literature and cinema studies. Aside from book chapters and articles, she has published three books: Home Girls: Chicana Literary Voices, Temple University Press and Reading U.S. Latina Writers: Remapping American Literature, Palgrave/Macmillan Press and the co-edited FEMINIST CYBERSPACES: PEDAGOGY IN TRANSITION, Cambridge Scholar's Press. Her research interests focus on feminist theory; sexuality and difference; new technologies, transnational gender studies with a particular emphasis on the intersections between U.S. Latino/as and Latin American cultural practices; multiculturalism in the U.S.A and abroad; the internationalization of American Studies. She is currently working on a book that reconceptualizes American literary practices and a documentary film that explores notions of transculturation and the Black Pacific.

    Degrees

    ​​She received her Ph.D. from the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

    Alvina Quintana teaches courses on cultural, Black American, women's, sexuality and gender studies. 

    Current Projects

    “Bridging Cultures in the Black Pacific” will result in a one-hour documentary film that explores the notion of an African American, and African, presence and diaspora in the Pacific. The project explores issues of transcultural adoption, transculturation, skin color identities and hierarchies, as well as anti-racist solidarity between African Americans, native Hawaiians and Asian Americans. These concepts are made increasingly relevant and complex by the contemporary ease of jet travel within the United States, as well as routes of swelling immigration and dislocation throughout the Pacific, and indeed, the non-European emergent, developing world. The collaborative project involving Cinema Studies at New York University and Women & Gender Studies at the University of Delaware exemplifies feminist methodology, taking on the specific subject Kamaka Kehau Fernandez an individual whose identity illustrates notions related to heterogeneity and the social construction of identity.
