Editor’s Note Volume II, Number 1


  • Miguel Antonio Jimenez University of Santo Tomas Graduate School


The cover gives us a hint of the content of this issue. There are three elements that are identifiable in the cover. The skull symbolizes cemeteries, and the natives that have died in the name of their country. The Western combat boots represent the west’s control over the different countries in Southeast Asia. And a barefoot which represents the struggle of the natives throughout their experience of colonization. All of these elements lead us to the central theme of the issue which is land. Land could be used in different ways. It is where we get most of our resources (which became the reason for the colonization of many counties), a space where we can build a home or a community, and a resting place for the dead.
