As a constantly ongoing and reinvented Lecture Performance, “Filipinos, Cannibalism, and Mothers Dancing on Tongues” works with themes linked to Stephanie Misa’s current artistic research namely the persistence of languages relegated to its oral form, and the activation of this “orality”— its evolution, cannibalism, appropriation of terms, and creative becomings.
The lecture will be held in English.
Place: Mylly K-218.
