Body and Power: The Politics of Culture in Nineteenth-Century Philippines

In conjunction with the exhibition Sheer Realities: A Celebration of Philippine Culture

The end of the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines represented a defining moment, one that witnessed the growth of nationalism and the crystallization of national identity. In a series of lectures and panels, the multi-layered ethnic, religious, and cultural history of the Philippines will be examined, along with its impact on present-day Filipino and Filipino American culture. An international group of performers, writers, and scholars from the U.S. and abroad will provide varied perspectives. For a complete symposium agenda: Click Here.
