Framing Land: U.S. Colonial Postcards of the Philippines
Focusing on places represented in postcards printed during the U.S. occupation of the Philippines, this exhibit invites you to think about how land is framed, transformed, and interpreted in a colonial context.
This exhibit was curated to complement Joan Carling’s appointment as Chair of the 2021 Weissberg Program in Human Rights and Social Justice at Beloit College. Carling is an indigenous Filipino human rights activist and environmentalist who has defended native and marginalized peoples’ rights for over two decades.
Exhibit curated by Dr. Jennifer Santos Esperanza and Manuel Ferreira
