Philippine-American Intersections and the Emergence of Transpacific Studies Traditional Panel

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - 10:20am
American Studies Association (ASA), 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018

The last two years have witnessed shifting relations between the Philippines and the United States, nations still tethered by a unique bond of transpacific colonial history. Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte’s calamitous war on drugs, as well as his designation of the Communist Party of the Philippines and New People’s Army as terrorist groups, have met with U.S. President Donald Trump’s approval and admiration. While the Obama administration sought to leverage Philippine alliance in a globalist “pivot to Asia,” it remains to be seen how the Philippine-American postcolonial relationship will be redefined in coming years.
