Kristine Aquino is Lecturer in Global Studies at the School of International Studies, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Her research is broadly concerned with migration, multiculturalism, race and racism, and transnationalism. She explores these issues in the context of urban everyday life through the use of qualitative and ethnographic methods.
Her recently published book Racism and Resistance among the Filipino Diaspora (Routledge) explores Filipino migration to Australia and grounds larger questions about race, citizenship, nationhood and anti-racism in lived experiences. Her current work examines two areas - the different modes of lived multiculture in the suburban neighbourhoods of Sydney; and the transnational dimensions to the leisure and sporting practices of Filipino migrant men living and working in global cities in the Asia-Pacific.
Kristine received her PhD in Sociology from Macquarie University. She is currently Co-Convener of the Australian Sociological Association's Migration, Ethnicity, Mulituculturalism (MEM) Thematic Group. She has also undertaken commissioned research for the government, NGO and community sectors on issues related to diversity and inequality in Western Sydney.
