Vicente L. Rafael
Professor of History

Welcome to my website. I am a Professor of History whose research and teaching include the following fields: Southeast Asia (especially the Philippines), Comparative Colonialism (especially Spain and the United States), and Comparative Nationalism. I also maintain an active interest in the related fields of cultural anthropology, literary studies and European continental philosophy. Through my location in the department of history, I have sought to touch on topics that include language and power, translation and religious conversion, technology and humanity, the politics and poetics of representation.

This website offers links to my CV and publicatons, as well as links to resources for doing research on the Philippines and to other useful sites.
