Jeremi (Jem) Panganiban (PH)

Jeremi (Jem) Panganiban (PH) is interested in feminist anthropologies of sustainability, care, and resilience in maritime Southeast Asia. In her own research work, she explores how women in ocean communities thrive in the midst of armed aggression and biodiversity collapse. She is interested in the life and vitality of women in maritime communities, whose proximity to sites of crisis lend themselves to greater exposure to layers of insecurity. Jem is currently a PhD student in Peace Studies and Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame. She received her B.S. in Community Development from the University of the Philippines and an M.A in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies from the Ohio State University. Prior to her graduate studies, she worked at feminist non-profit and human rights advocacy groups based in the Philippines. Jem is from Metro Manila, Philippines.
