About the book:
The Resil Mojares Reader contains twelve articles on Cebu selected from the writings of “Cebu’s foremost scholar,” Resil B. Mojares. Written between 1976 and 2012, the articles range from a variety of topics including Cebuano notions of personhood, space, and ‘world’, the historical formation of rural and metropolitan communities in Cebu, the symbolic dynamics of early Cebuano fiction, and the politics of nationalism as it played out in local controversies in the early twentieth-century over U.S. economic dominance, the Cebuano migration to Hawaii, and the political career of Sergio Osmeña.
