Positively No Filipinos Allowed: Building Communities and Discourse / Edition 1by Antonio Tiongson
Pub. Date: 01/28/2006
Publisher: Temple University Press
From the perspectives of ethnic studies, history, literary criticism, and legal studies, the original essays in this volume examine the ways in which the colonial history of the Philippines has shaped Filipino American identity, culture, and community formation. The contributors address the dearth of scholarship in the field as well as show how an understanding of this complex history provides a foundation for new theoretical frameworks for Filipino American studies.
