Asia, America, and the World: Overseas Filipino Workers During Pandemic Times

Asia America and the World

Join the Northeastern University Asian Studies Program for the third speaker in this series, Dr. Dada Docot, as she presents “Extraordinary Precarities: Overseas Filipino Workers During Pandemic Times.”

Professor of Anthropology at Purdue University, Dr. Dada Docot has written books and conducted research centering around Filipino overseas migration. Her current book project presents an ethnographic viewpoint of life in the “Town of Dollars,” her hometown located in the Southeast part of Luzon Island, Philippines, that has been radically changed by foreign involvement. She is committed to expanding conversations on the postcolonial condition that is fatigued by multiple histories of colonization, enduring precarity, and growing global inequality. While at New York University Shanghai, Dr. Docot’s research centered around Filipino teachers in China in connection with the changing relationship between China and the Philippines.
