Dr. Clutario investigates the making of a transnational embroidery industry known as “Philippine Lingerie” during U.S. colonial occupation, exposing the Filipina labor production in private homes and workshops, U.S. colonial industrial schools and prisons. Dr. Clutario’s research demonstrates beauty’s power and how it functions as a structuring force that determines individual and cultural practices as well as national and transnational politics and policy formation under US empire.


An Assistant Professor of History at Harvard University, Dr. Clutario is the author of the forthcoming Beauty Regimes: Disciplining Modernity in the Transimperial Philippines from Duke University Press. Dr. Clutario’s interests include Asian/American histories in global perspectives; comparative histories of modern empire; transnational feminisms; gender, race, and the politics of fashion and beauty. She is on the board of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society.
