In response to Cha: The Asian Literary Journal’s special issue on ‘Writing the Philippines’, this forum aims to foreground and reframe for inquiry the geographic, economic, institutional, environmental, and aesthetic conditions surrounding the cultural production of creative writing in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The different speakers will discuss the contingencies and resistances in generating texts, anthologies, and pedagogies that would represent the plurality of an archipelagic and diasporic community, which stretches across island systems and beyond territorial boundaries.
Conducted in English. All are welcome.
