In this summer abroad course, we explore the complexity of the colonial history, geographical make up and postcolonial predicament of Philippine culture. Through the dances that will be taught, this course will embody the wide array of cultural and historical influences that have defined the Philippines and its diaspora today.
While learning about the country's history, culture, politics, material conditions and other related expressive cultures through lectures, students will also have the opportunity to see the culture through activities and excursions in and around Manila, the capital of the Philippines. In taking this course and learning the dances, students can reflect upon how Filipinos have negotiated their everyday lives, the outside, and various forces that have entered their locales.
