On the Subject of the Nation
Caroline S. Hau's On the Subject of the Nation: Filipino Writings from the Margins 1981-2004 looks at texts produced since the Martial Law era in light of two historical developments that have shaped Philippine experience: revolution and migration. It illuminates the ongoing transformation and redefinition of the Filipino nation-state while highlighting the ways in which the individual and collective experiences, struggles, dreams, and aspirations of Filipinos serve to rethink notions of belonging, sacrifice, learning, labor, and love that underpin the theory and practice of nation-building.
