One of the most important figures in Filipino American history, Carlos Bulosan is best known for America is in the Heart, a searing novel of the Great Depression and a classic of Asian American literature.
In marking the centennial of Carlos Bulosan’s birth, this conference will address the relationship between his artistic and political approaches, re-situating his novels in relation to both Philippine and American literary traditions, his politics in relation to the socialist and liberal democratic currents of his era and our own, and his place in understanding the braided histories of labor migration, racial formation, Filipino diasporic imagination, and imperial expansion in the American Asia-Pacific before and after World War II.
