Western imperial ideologies often justified rule of a foreign land by a
distant power through the enshrinement of a certain *idea* as the first
qualification to rightful sovereignty—the due earthly dominion of one’s
religion, the civilizing mission, the principles and application of
enlightened government, and the technological capacity to till the land and
thus assume true ‘ownership’ over it have all variously underwritten
imperialism. Meanwhile, many of imperialism’s fiercest refutations rested
upon the paramountcy of *place*—even Edmund Burke’s internal critique of
British Empire was premised on the legitimate, affective ties of place and
group. This presentation features thinking from a work-in-progress chapter
from Ms CuUnjieng’s dissertation on Southeast Asian transnational
Pan-Asianism in the Philippine Revolution. It follows the emplotment of
place in the proto-national and revolutionary thought of
turn-of-the-century Filipino thinkers, and how its negotiations with and
constructions of the place of ‘Asia’ and the spatial registers of race
connected them to their regional neighbors undertaking the same work.
