The field of Area Studies has always been a contentious field. Heated debates on its colonial origins, the positionality of its scholars, and its directions, occasionally arise. In this online launch of “Plural Entanglements: Philippine Studies,” anthropologist Dr. Dada DOCOT will talk about some of these enduring debates and the ethic of scholarly generosity, plurality, and diversity that frames the new edited collection published by Ateneo de Manila University Press. Dr. Grace BARRETTO-TESORO will also introduce their path-breaking chapter featured in the book that uses Indigenous perspectives in rebuilding a chronology that potentially advances a decolonial approach in the study of Asia.
