Imagining Manila virtual book launch

9 Feb

You are cordially invited to the online launch of my new book Imagining Manila: Literature, Empire and Orientalism. Thrilled to be joined by esteemed colleagues Deborah Shaw, Oscar V. Campomanes and Roderick Galam.

It’s on at 19.00 British Standard Time on Thursday 8th April 2021.

“This book examines British and American writing on the city, situating these representations within scholarship on empire, orientalism and US, Asian and European political history.

“Through analysis of novels, memoirs, travelogues and journalism written about Manila by Westerners since the early eighteenth century, Tom Sykes builds a picture of Western attitudes towards the city and the wider Philippines, and the mechanics by which these came to dominate the discourse.”
