Jemuel Jr. B. Garcia (kahidlaw) is a Filipino second-year Ph.D. student in Critical Dance Studies with a Designated Emphasis in Southeast Asian Studies at the University of California, Riverside. He is a 2016 Fellow of the Fulbright Graduate Student Program, a 2017 recipient of the Dean’s Distinguished Fellowship Award, and a 2018 Classroom Fellow for the UCR Gluck Program of the Arts. He finished his Master’s degree in Physical Education (dance stream, 2014) and graduated magna cum laude with his Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education (double major in sports and dance, minor in music, 2009). With eight years of teaching experience at WVSU, Garcia has also served as a Bayer Philippines representative to a study tour of Leverkusen, Germany (2008), a cultural exchange scholar for the JENESYS-ASEAN-OCEANIAN Cultural Exchange Program in Tokyo, Japan (2013), and a youth delegate to the ASEAN Diversity Summit in Bangkok, Thailand (2014). He has also presented papers at UCR’s Dance Under Construction Conference 2018, UCR’s Artificial Lives: Debating Medical Modernity Conference 2018, and UC Davis’ 7th Annual Native American Studies Graduate Student Symposium. In 2018, he helped choreograph USA’s Team Form performance that won gold in the Global Stick and Blade Alliance World Championships at Lisbon, Portugal. He also competes in the bronze syllabus of American Smooth/Rhythm and International Standard/Latin ballroom dance styles since 2017. His research and choreography engage to flesh out the dynamics of the Filipino dancing body as it navigates the physical and textual spaces of performance rooted in indigenous practices to deal with histories, memories, and futurities and confront the impact of colonial oppression, imperial violence, and historical trauma.
