FRONTIER CONSTITUTIONS: CHRISTIANITY & COLONIAL EMPIRE IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY PHILIPPINES
Tues., May 19 | 6:00PM | Cross-Cultural Center
Dr. Jody Blanco will present his work on Frontier Constitutions, which concerns the cultural transformations, adaptations, and innovations of peninsular Spanish colonists and native-born Creole, mestizo (Chinese and Spanish), and indigenous colonial subjects around crisis of colonial hegemony in the Philippines between the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; and the resulting social anomie that arose from this crisis in law and politics. The crisis of colonial hegemony engendered new political and cultural expressions, which, in turn, sanctioned the formation of new political communities around the precariousness of Spanish rule.
