HistoryHIS 143B History of the Philippines, 1815 to the Present

Examines Philippine history from the early 19th century through the present. Though the course timeline begins in the Spanish colonial period, the class interrogates understandings of the pre-colonial past and how these have informed Philippine nationalism, intellectual history, social sciences, and more. Students learn about debates in the field and become familiar with scholarship from the Philippines. Students also reflect on the political urgency of the contemporary moment and how transnational flows of migrants, activism, and cultural production have changed dominant approaches to historical studies on the archipelago.
