Anne E. Lacsamana, assistant professor of women's studies, recently had her essay "Identities, Nation, and Imperialism: Confronting Empire in Filipina American Feminist Thought" published in the anthology Globalization and Third World Women: Exploitation, Coping, and Resistance, co-edited by Ligaya Lindio-McGovern and Isidor Walliman. 

Using the present-day human rights crisis in the Philippines as a backdrop, Lacsamana's essay critiques the 'cultural' or postmodern turn in contemporary Filipina American feminist scholarship. As a corrective to these theoretical tendencies, Lacsamana argues for a return to a systemic, materialist analysis, modeled after the political and ideological praxis of the nationalist feminist movement in the Philippines.
