UH CSEAS virtual Screening of Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be)

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Center for Southeast Asian Studies is hosting a virtual screening of Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be) next month. It will be screening online for free from February 4 to 9, following by a panel discussion with me, my co-filmmaker Kenneth Cardenas, and Maria Karaan on February 9, 2022, 2:00pm HST.

Kenneth Cardenas is a PhD Candidate in Geography at York University in Toronto, studying the big business of building big cities in the global South. You can find more about his work here.

Maria Natividad I. Karaan is pursuing her PhD in English with a focus on Pacific and Southeast Asian Literature at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa. Her current research trajectory revolves around tropography and geopoetics through literary encounters among Southeast Asian and Pacific island spaces by exploring texts that challenge designations of the folk, the modern, and the contemporary. Specifically, she is interested in the ways that time, space, place, and memory interplay under a transcorporeal frame that redefines the boundaries, both physical and abstract, set by imperial logic. In doing so, she aims to challenge the neocolonial and neoliberal structures under which the island—and the archipelago—had been and continue to be imagined, represented, and controlled by looking into radical—in the rooted and revolutionary senses—epistemologies enacted by both human and non-human bodies.
