Filipino American Studies at the Crossroads: Art, Activism and Scholarship in Response to Philippine State Violence
Conference April 5 Humanities 210, Stevenson Events Center
In response to current state violence and political repression in the Philippines we wish to bring together emerging scholars, artists, and activists whose work is addressing this situation. In particular, we aim to create an opportunity for a community dialogue around politically engaged Filipino/a American cultural production and related political organizing. The conference on April 5 will consist of two academic panels, an activism roundtable involving community organizations around the Bay Area, and an evening of performances including Aimee Suzara, Lani Montreal, Haluan and People Power of UCSC’s Filipino Student Association, and a screening of a documentary by Eric Tandoc, a student in UCSC’s Social Documentation program.
