Agam: Filipino Narratives on Uncertainty and Climate Change
Edited by Regina Abuyuan, this book reflects the confrontation between climate change and diverse cultures across the Philippines. It combines original works in prose, verse and photographs and depicts uncertainty - and tenacity - from the Filipino perspective. The title - Agam - an old Filipino word for uncertainty and memory - captures the essence of this book. It includes twenty-six images and creative narratives in eight Filipino languages, with translations in English, by twenty-four writers representing a broad array of disciplines - poets, journalists, anthropologists, scientists, and artists.
