Come hear Sarita Echavez See (Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at the University of California Riverside) discuss her new book, The Filipino Primitive: Accumulation, Resistance, and the American Museum. The book analyzes the phenomenon of accumulating the primitive—the barbarian, the uncivilized, the savage—by focusing on the representation of the Filipino in American imperial museum collections and in Filipino American theatre, writing, and art.
In this talk, See will analyze works by the multi-media feminist Filipino American artist Stephanie Syjuco who critiques the capitalist, heterosexist and colonial tendencies of the museum.
