 Rizal and the rethinking of the analytics of Malayness
Rommel A. CURAMING
 

 

ABSTRACT This paper revisits Jose Rizal’s thoughts relevant to the Malays to extract insights and implications which may be useful in rethinking the parameters of the ongoing debates on Malayness. I argue that these terms need to be rethought because they restrict even the most well-intentioned scholarly efforts to unsettle the foundation of the ethnic or race-based politics that they seek to neutralize.
 
KEYWORDS: Jose Rizal, Malay, Malayness, Filipino Malayness, identity politics
