This course surveys major themes in the history of the Philippines, paying particular attention to their cultural dimensions. Starting with its inception as a colony of Spain, through the American colonial period, to the post-colonial present, we will draw from Philippine historiography, ethnography, literary works and popular culture to examine the cultural effects of processes such as religious conversion and colonial encounter; revolution and nationalism; hybridity and language; regionalism and identity formation; modernity, globalization, and migration. Class format will consist of lectures and discussion, with several classes dedicated to exploring the University of Michigan’s vast collections of Philippine-related material. Students will be expected to be present for all classes, participate in discussion, and carry out individual research projects. Grades will be determined by short-answer exams, reading response papers, and the final paper.
