Enshrining The Nation: Monuments To Forgetting And The Invention Of Historical Memory
|Author||Jaymee T. Siao|
|Pages||2013, 89pp, 160g|
"A compelling and perceptive work on Filipino culture, Jaymee Siao looks ironically at Philippine monuments as moments of forgetting and instances of reimagining our history which goes with our ambivalent attitudes towards our past. Her study definitely is a way of narrating, but more than a perspective, this work views history in the context of urban space, a merging of time and space in Bakhtinian's concept of chronotope, thus revealing monuments as temporal and spatial categories of our worldviews." --Gary Devilles, Ateneo de Manila University
