Description of Activity
Tom Sykes gave a presentation entitled 'Getting the Philippines Wrong Since 1840.' Drawing from his book, 'Imagining Manila,' to describe several enduring representational tropes and devices that have defined a trajectory of British and American Orientalist fiction, travel writing and journalism about the city of Manila. Termed “Manilaism,” he discussed counter-hegemonic canon of Filipino and foreign writers who have dissented from this distorted view of Manila.
