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.
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
