Annie Fukushima (F'13-15)

Mellon Postdoctoral Associate, Institute for Research on Women (IRW) Scholar, in conjunction with the Women’s and Gender Studies Department

Annie is a 2012 graduate of the Ethnic Studies Department with a Designated Emphasis in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, where she wrote a dissertation entitled Asian and Latina Migrants in the United States and the Invisible / Visible Paradigm of Human Trafficking. Her work explores the trafficking of Asian and Latinas/os into the United States from countries as diverse as Peru, Korea, and the Phillipines. Using case studies, she explores the shifting meaning of trafficking through a series of dichotomies (such as visibility/invisibility; victimhood/criminality). Her work makes scholarly interventions in the fields of Womens and Gender Studies, American studies, ethnic studies, media studies and law.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
