Welcome to the new TWISEA!

This week we are officially switching over to the new TWISEA. We hope that you enjoy the simplified, mobile-friendly format!

We are still figuring out the exact format of the newsletter over the next few weeks. If you have any comments, criticisms and/or questions about the new TWISEA, please let us know. We greatly appreciate all of your feedback about how to make the TWISEA more enjoyable for you. 

We will also be having a photo contest for the TWISEA banner. If you have any photos from Southeast Asia, send them to seac@uw.edu. Please make them in the shape that you see above in the current banner. If there are any people in the photo, please also attach a photo release form signed by that person. The contest will end February 28. 


Thank you,

Celia, Rebakah, Sarah and Kasey

"Subversive Lives, a Continuing Struggle" 

A Public Talk by Susan Quimpo

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 4:30-6:30 PM

     CMU (Commmunication Building) Room 226

Susan F. Quimpo is a co-author and co-editor of Subversive Lives: A Family Memoir of the Marcos Years (Ohio University Press, 2016; Anvil Publishing). She is a writer, an art therapist and counselor. For years she's kept to her private life and practice. But last year, when Marcos' son Ferdinand "Bongbong" Jr. filed and nearly won the vice presidential post, Susan felt it was her duty to tell the others the truth about the martial law era. She has been active in the fight against the revisionism of Philippine history that seeks to paint the Marcos years as a "golden age." She was also at the forefront of recent protests against the burial of the dictator's remains at the National Heroes' Cemetery.

Talk is free and open to the public.
