Rina Garcia Chua is currently taking her PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of British
Columbia Okanagan, where she is pursuing a project on "The Ecological Literacy of a Migrant
Ecocriticism,” which is a cross-cultural analysis of Canadian and Filipinx ecopoetry that provides a literacy
to trace transnational knowledges of identity, environments, and ecologies in migrant, settler, and
indigenous citizenships. Her short stories and poems have been published in both international and
Philippine presses, most recently with World Literature Today; Goose: A Journal of Arts, Environment,
and Culture in Canada ; Aster(ix) Journal, and Paper Shell 2019 . She is the editor of Sustaining the
Archipelago: An Anthology of Philippine Ecopoetry , which was published by the University of Santo
Tomas Publishing House last 2018 and was nominated for the National Book Award category of Best
Anthology in English.
