María Regina Firmino-Castillo

María Regina Firmino-Castillo is a researcher and transdisciplinary artist, among other things. She was born in Guatemala and spent her early years migrating between El Salvador, Nicaragua, and the U.S., which causes her to question borders and taxonomies of all kinds. She investigates the political and bodily dimensions of ontologies through an anti-colonial transdisciplinarity and a critical dialogue with anthropology and dance and performance studies. She is currently a professor in the School of Dance at the University of California-Riverside, teaching graduate seminars and undergraduate courses that often combine research and writing with experimental embodied epistemologies.
