Research and writing of a book-length study on literary and cultural connections between the Philippines and Latin America, 1898-1964.

My book-length project is comprised of five chapters that explore various parallels and concrete points of contact between Latin American and Filipino writers and diplomats from 1898 to 1964, two emblematic years. While 1898 was a turning point for the entangled histories of the Philippines, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, which became subject--albeit in different ways--to US imperialism, 1964 is a symbolic year during which major celebrations were held in the Philippines and Mexico for the fourth centenary of the 1564 expedition that resulted in the discovery of a maritime return route from the Philippines to New Spain (modern day Mexico). With the NEH summer stipend, I plan to complete the final phase of archival research for my project and to draft the last chapter.
