Roland Sintos Coloma



Roland Sintos Coloma is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) of the University of Toronto. His research and teaching areas focus on Filipina/o and Asian Canadian studies; transnationalism, empire, and diaspora; subjectivity, affect, and sociality; history and cultural studies. In particular, he examines the historical trans-Pacific dynamics between Asia and North America from critical race, feminist, and poststructuralist perspectives. Along these lines, he is working on three research projects: (1) a history of the public school system in the Philippines under United States rule from 1898 to 1926; (2) a history of Canadian Catholic missionaries in the Philippines from 1955 to 1985; and (3) a comparative history of Asian Canadian social movements for justice and reparation. Roland completed his PhD in Cultural Studies and Minor in African American Studies from The Ohio State University, and his MA and BA from the University of California, Riverside. Prior to becoming an academic, Roland was a high school teacher, university administrator, and community organizer.
