The Postcolonial Perverse Vol. 2
Extending his inquiry in fields that go beyond LGBT studies, J. Neil Garcia's 'The Postcolonial Perverse' proposes a critique of the dominant view of Philippine culture which sees identity as inherited and prescribed. Garcia argues that identity is constructed through struggle, and that we are indeed the authors of our lives. Garcia sketches the framework and contours of the landscape, encouraging us to invent and discover ourselves.
