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

updated: 
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.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Nature, the landscape and the environment have enjoyed a recurrent presence, indeed have been constant protagonists, in Irish literature and culture.This wild isolated island, originally feared or even despised by foreigners progressively became that romanticized, pre-modern Arcadia imagined by tourists from the early twentieth century onwards. The once desolated and barren landscapes of the Great Hunger were imaginatively recreated as green pastures, nostalgically conjured up by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Irish emigrants across the world.
