Tatlong Nikkeijin And Six Photos: Culture, People And State Power
|Author||Lydia N. Yu-Jose|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
Talong Nikkeijin and Six Photos: Culture, People and State Power presents two novel ways of capturing the intimacy of contemporary Philippines-Japan relations. It uses photos and diaries of Nikkeijin. Its title violates the rules of proper communication in Philippine society: avoid code-switching could have been avoided, but good grammar was purposefully avoided and three languages were deliberately mixed to convey the richness and complexity of the intimate relationship.
