*Weaving Cultures: The Invention of Colonial Art and Culture in the
Philippines, 1565—1850*

René B. Javellana, SJ

In his latest book, René B. Javellana, SJ reads the emergence of a unique
art and culture in the Philippines during the colonial era from the optic
of communications theory and the emerging theoretical discourse from
information design.Weaving Cultures: The Invention of Colonial Art and
Culture in the Philippines, 1565—1850 views colonial exchange not primarily
as an exchange of cultural goods, tangible or intangible, but as a
negotiation forged by the communication between sender and receiver. A
controlling metaphor is that of weaving: where strands of thread, placed at
right angles to each other and woven in and out in patterns of skips,
create the almost endless variety of textiles.

*16 May 2017 | 4;30-7 p.m.*
