Instructor of Political Science
Kate Yusi is a graduate of political science from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. Having taken her undergraduate degree at the University of Guam in political science, it deeply encouraged and moved her to learn more about political theory and indigenous politics. Particularly, she's interested in learning more about the ways in which ontological and epistemological violence manifest in the Asia-Pacific regions and its peoples. She is interested in learning more about different stories and living in this world differently. Recently, she has been studying ontological differences around the concept of death and dying and what the ways of dying means to a people whose lives have been in perpetual state of injury.
