This interdisciplinary panel of speakers discusses what it means to speak, write, and
dream in languages other than English at this time of increasingly shrinking borders and
yet widening gap of inequality.
“The Philippines and its Elsewhere” explores the politics of knowledge production, university education, and global citizenship with Filipino Studies as its launching point. It is concerned with what interconnectivity across borders enables and demands, as forms and politics of the global continually shifts.
