Rina Garcia Chua

Rina Garcia Chua is currently taking up her PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of British Columbia Okanagan, where she is pursuing a project on “The Ecological Literacy of a Migrant Ecocriticism,” a cross-cultural analysis of Canadian and Filipinx ecopoetry that provides a literacy to trace transnational knowledges of identity, environments, and ecologies in migrant, settler, and indigenous citizenships. Her most recent publications are a book chapter entitled “The Germination of Ecological Literacy in a Third World Nation” in Environment and Pedagogy in Higher Education with Lexington Books, and a book review entitled “The Precarity of Energy Security and Environmental Activism in Southeast Asia” with the Asia-Pacific Social Science Review. She is also the editor of Sustaining the Archipelago: An Anthology of Philippine Ecopoetry, which was published by the University of Santo Tomas Publishing House in 2018 and was nominated for the National Book Award category of Best Anthology in English.
