Hello! My name is Aaron Gozum and I am a Filipinx American doctoral student in Communication at UC San Diego. Situated between cultural studies and performance studies, my research focuses on sonic aesthetics as a way of thinking through solidarity in times of struggle and disposability. I also maintain a creative practice writing songs, poems, and more. Much of my research and creative practice is informed by my involvement in organizing with Malaya Movement, an antifascist Filipino organization in the US that defends and upholds democracy, human rights and sovereignty in the Philippines.
