Hispanic Philippines 1870-1950

The Hispanic Philippines, 1870-1950: Racial Nationalism, Colonial Impairment, and Cultures of Postcolonial Disability
In this course we will study the Hispanic cultures and literatures of the Philippines in relation to US, Spanish, and Japanese colonialism. The “Ilustración Filipina” or Philippine Enlightenment was a mestizo nationalist movement through which the Filipino nation is normatively said to have been consolidated. Drawing from postcolonial theory and disability studies, this course will ask students to analyze the formation of national identities through representations of disability, impairment, and deficiency.
