Abstract

In Asian Place, Filipino Nation: A Global Intellectual History of the Philippine Revolution, 1887-1912, Nicole CuUnjieng Aboitiz offers a transnational examination of the Philippine Revolution that reconnects it to the histories of Southeast and East Asia. One of the potential benefits that Asian Place, Filipino Nation might bring is a revision of the way the history of the 1898 revolution is taught for young Filipino students. While a pedagogical strategy in the Philippines might focus the view on how the nation arose within the context of the archipelago vis-a-vis the Spanish colonisers, the question about how one can introduce the spread of ideas and resources beyond assigned territorial boundaries needs to be faced, writes Niccolo Vitug.
