Finding home

Elaine Laforteza

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


Using a self-reflexive approach, this article critically unpacks the ways in which Filipinos negotiate their self, national and international identity in conjunction with the figure of Spain as a past coloniser with continuing post-colonising affects. These material affects constitute many varied and different ways of embodying and disembodying 'home'. This article tracks how these various ways of experiencing 'home' can create cultural connections between and within Filipinos in the Filipino diaspora.
