An Aesthetic Politics of Gendered Violence: The Maguindanao Massacre, Kinatay, and National Times

November 19, 2010 @ 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

UHM Women’s Studies Colloquium Series Fall 2010
Co-Sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the Center for Philippines Studies
Friday, 19 November 2010, 12:30 pm, Saunders Hall, Room 624

Presented by Melisa Casumbal-Salazar, Doctoral Candidate, Department of Political Science UHM

As rendered in both the social and cinematic events this presentation engages, misogynist violence in the Philippines is simultaneously spectacular and invisible, exceptional and banal, unintelligible and mutiply-coded. The mode of misogynist violence upon which is focused is on in this colloquium is the rape and murder of women and the mutilation of their bodies, as perpetrated in the event popularly known as the Ampatuan or Maguindanao Massacre (November 23, 2009), and as staged in the film Kinatay/Butchered (dir. Brilliante Mendoza, 2009).
