TRANSIMPERIAL VIOLENCE AND THE MAKING OF THE MORO PROVINCE
Tuesday, 6 September 2022 | Faura Audio Visual Room | 4:30 - 6:00 PM PHT
This talk explores how colonial violence was imagined and enacted in the Moro Province, a partitioned sub-state of the U.S. colonial Philippines that existed from 1903 until 1914. Governed by U.S. Army officers, the province was the site of numerous eruptions of armed violence, most notably at Bud Dajo on the island of Jolo in 1906, where nearly 1000 Tausūg Moros were slaughtered by colonial troops. Such massacres existed alongside a culture of everyday violence manifested in policing and incarcerating Muslim and Lumad populations. I argue that to understand these events we need to contextualize them within a border-crossing framework that situates U.S. colonial violence-making within its proper transimperial setting. In this reading, events like the massacres at Bud Dajo or Bud Bagsak, or the “ordinary” violence of the Moro Province, were bound up in a wider punitive culture that existed across multiple colonized states. Reading violence in the Moro Province this way deprovincializes and re-centers Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago in both U.S. and Philippine historiographies.

BOOK TALK: ANG PAGBUO NG KARTOGRAPIYA
Paano nabuo ang aklat ng mga tula ni Ralph Fonte na pinamagatang Ang Kartograpiya ng Pagguho? Nauna ba ang mga tula sa mga guhit na napaloloob sa aklat? O nauna ang mga guhit bago isulat ang mga tula? O marahil nauna ang "pagguho" bago sinubukang mabuo ang Kartograpiya ng Pagguho.
Gayunpaman, nais naming usisain ang doktor, manlalakbay, at makatang si Ralph Fonte kasama ang mga gumuhit ng mga obra sa aklat na sina Jem Magbanua at Zeke Cancio tungkol sa kaugnayan ng aspetong biswal at tekstwal, guhit at titik, sining at panitikan.
Kasama si Yol Jamendang, Jr. ng Kagawaran ng Filipino ng Ateneo de Manila, samahan ninyo kami sa ika-7 ng Setyembre, 5:00 ng hapon sa Facebook Live para sa talakayan na ito.
