Anna Storti is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Women’s Studies, a Ronald E. McNair Graduate Fellow, and a Graduate School All-S.T.A.R. Fellow for the 2018-2019 academic year. She graduated with honors from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with degrees in Gender, Ethnicity, and Multicultural Studies and Business Administration with an emphasis in Non-Profit Management. At Maryland, Anna has taught courses in Women’s Studies and LGBT Studies and has been the president for the Women’s Studies Graduate Student Association and the Speaker’s Bureau Coordinator for the LGBT Equity Center.

Anna’s dissertation project examines mixed-race Asian diasporic art and performance in order to, on one hand, inquire into the colonial legacies that the contemporary language of multiraciality obscures, and on the other, build a methodology for tracing how the body retains, remembers, and contests those colonial legacies. Her work crosses the boundaries of Asian diasporic studies, critical mixed-race studies, queer of color critique, performance studies, and postcolonial feminism.
