LIFTING THE NATIONAL VEIL:  FINDING 19TH-CENTURY COLONIAL MANILA IN  
THE MIDST OF THE REVOLUTION

November 20 (Tuesday), 4:30 to 6:00 P.M.
Faura AVR


ABSTRACT:

Current Philippine historiography still continues to be dominated by  
nationalist narratives despite valiant efforts of other scholars to  
deviate from the linear and static interpretations of the national and  
elite past.  Indeed, there are significant works such as Reynaldo C.  
Ileto?s Pasyon and Revolution (1979) that have interrogated and  
challenged conventional approach to understanding modern Philippine  
history in their effort to incorporate those ?from the below?;  
however, this historiographical shift has inadvertently exposed the  
precarious issue of inclusion and exclusion in historical  
representation and public memory.

In this presentation, I will talk about how I address the issue of  
?inclusion? and ?exclusion? within Philippine historiography in  
conducting my study of 19th century colonial Manila during the  
Revolutionary period as both a separate entity as well as an integral  
part of an emerging national community.  As the center of power and  
wealth, colonial Manila?s history has always been entangled with the  
national history.  One of my main objectives is to uncover the history  
of 19th century Manila buried underneath the history of the nation and  
perhaps, help Manila?s own narratives to flourish alongside the  
nation?s history.
