Puro Arte: Filipinos on the Stages of Empire
Puro Arte: Filipinos on the Stages of Empire explores the emergence of Filipino American theater and performance from the early 20th century to the present. It stresses the Filipino performing body's location as it conjoins colonial histories of the Philippines with US race relations and discourses of globalization. It turns to performance as an object of study and as a way of understanding complex historical processes of racialization in relation to empire and colonialism.
