Jillian Hernandez recently completed the doctoral program in Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University, and will join the faculty in the Ethnic Studies Department and Critical Gender Studies Program at the University of California, San Diego as an assistant professor in fall 2013. Her transdisciplinary scholarship, which synthesizes methods from anthropology, art history, and cultural studies, draws from her experiences as a girls' educator and curator of contemporary art. Hernandez's research investigates questions regarding processes of racialization, sexualities, embodiment, girlhood, and the politics of cultural production ranging from underground and mainstream hip hop to visual and performance art. The American Association of University Women awarded her with a 2012-2013 Dissertation Fellowship.
