Dr. Paulina Abustan (any pronoun, gender fluid) centers the alternative worldmaking of intersectional disability justice and queer critical race feminists found within elementary school, youth popular culture, and transgender, nonbinary, queer, and diasporic Pilipinx social justice and decolonial learning spaces. Their critical intersectional feminist ethnography dissertation highlighted the ways in which elementary school teachers, staff, and students participate in alternative worldmaking everyday through building an interdependent community, prioritizing rest, and honoring differences. Their previous research publications showcased the alternative worldmaking of transgender, nonbinary, and queer students of color activists in higher education and the decolonial activisms of transgender, nonbinary, queer, Indigenous, and diasporic Pilipinx community leaders and educators. Their current and future research seeks to gather stories from sick, disabled, transgender, nonbinary, and queer educators and youth of color of what their dream learning spaces look and/or feel like and how dream worlds are imagined through youth popular culture animated shows. As an 8th year instructor, Dr. Paulina Abustan has taught Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Teaching and Learning, Multicultural Leadership, and Academic Success courses. Dr. Paulina Abustan is currently a cofounder and academic success coach of UW Bothell’s Academic Success Coaching Program and a Disability Culture lecturer of UW Bothell’s Educational Studies.
