Filipino American History Month Events 2013
The Filipino-American Historical Society of Hawai‘i (FAHSOH) coordinates several activities commemorating Hawaii's official recognition of Filipino American History Month (FAHM). Although recognized on the U.S. continent for several years, FAHM became officially recognized in Hawai‘i in 2008 with the passing of legislation introduced by State Representative Joey Manahan (Kalihi). The following event is being coordinated by FAHSOH for the 2012 commemoration, with co-sponsorship by the Filipino Community Center and the UHM Office of Multicultural Student Services.
Philippine Komiks: Creating and Reflecting Filipino Sensibilities
On going from December 11, 2011
Filipino Community Center, Waipahu, Oahu.
FAHSOH member Clement Bautista, administrator of eFIL: Filipino Digital Archives of Hawaii, assembled a traveling exhibit on Philippine komiks entitled, Philippine Komiks: Creating and Reflecting Filipino Sensibilities. The exhibit explores the formal constructs of komiks and how they communicate through their structural features. From the earliest known komiks created by Philippine national hero, Jose P. Rizal, to contemporary variations of the superwoman Darna, Filipino notions of time, place, personhood and hierarchy are created and reflected. By examining komiks within the Philippine context, as an activity of objectified reflection, this project will attempt to present a more generalized approach to understanding the comics phenomena that continually captives our society. Funded, in part, by the Hawaii Council for the Humanities. A web-based exhibit is currently being prepared. For the exhibit announce on library webpage: [click here].
Exhibit previously on display at Hamilton Library Asian Collection (University of Hawaii at Manoa) and the Hawaii State Library (Honolulu).
