IMG_0077Sharon M. Quinsaat received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Pittsburgh. In August 2016, she will be joining the Department of Sociology at Grinnell College as two-year Visiting Assistant Professor. Sharon studies social movements, migration, Southeast Asia, and Asian Americans from a global and transnational perspective. Her research has appeared in edited volumes and peer-reviewed journals such as Ethnic and Racial Studies, Mass Communication and Society, Sociology Compass, and Asian Survey. Sharon’s dissertation, entitled “Revolution From Afar: Mobilizations for Regime Change and the Making of the Filipino Diaspora, 1965-1992” argues that diasporas are outcomes, rather than causes or agents, of transnational mobilization. She was awarded the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant to complete data collection for this study. For more information about Sharon and her work, visit
