Terese Guinsatao Monberg is a rhetorician interested in methods for locating, excavating, making public, and mobilizing the institutional memories of historically underrepresented groups, with a specific focus in Asian Pacific American and Filipina/o American rhetorical and historical legacies. More broadly, Terese's work examines the recursive relationships between rhetoric and culture, history and social justice movements, collective identities and civic participation. In addition to being on the faculty in the RCAH, Terese is a core faculty member in Rhetoric and Writing, and an affiliated faculty member in the Asian Pacific American (APA) Studies Specialization. Terese is currently working on a book-length project tracing the emergence of the community-based Filipino American National Historical Society in relationship to larger economic, social, and global changes impacting Filipino American communities after World War II. In a second and related project, she is looking at the role of home and place in designing civic engagement initiatives. Terese is a third-generation (mestiza/hapa/mixed race) Filipina American and among the first generation in her family to finish college. She grew up in Chicago.

What do our Faculty Affiliations Mean?

Core Faculty have a strong continuing professional focus on issues of women and gender in domestic, international, or global contexts, as demonstrated through research and teaching or other achievements. The Core Faculty supports the activities of GenCen and assists in developing and implementing its programs and activities, and are also eligible to serve on the GenCen Advisory Committee.

Consulting Faculty, while having a professional interest in issues of women and gender in domestic, international, or global contexts and activities of the GenCen, usually do not have these interests as the main focus of their research. 

GDG (Gender, Development and Globalization) Faculty will also be either Core or Consulting Faculty and have specific expertise and interest in gender and international development.

GJEC (Gender, Justice and Environmental Change) Faculty may also be either Core or Consulting Faculty, though that is not a requirement. GJEC Faculty are dedicated to teaching and scholarship related to intersections of gender, environmental change, and social and environmental justice; examining these issues from both local and global perspectives.
