Orientalists, propagandists, and ilustrados : Filipino scholarship and the end of Spanish colonialism

Author: Megan C Thomas
Publisher: Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, ©2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The writings of a small group of scholars known as the ilustrados are often credited for providing intellectual grounding for the Philippine Revolution of 1896. Megan C. Thomas shows that the ilustrados' anticolonial project of defining and constructing the "Filipino" involved Orientalist and racialist discourses that are usually ascribed to colonial projects, not anticolonial ones.
