The ReConnect/ReCollect Project

This website was created as part of ReConnect/ReCollect: Reparative Connections to Philippine Connections.  At the heart of our project are three interrelated interventions: reparative curationreparative connections to community, and reparative scholarship. Through this website, we hope to connect with the Filipino community in a space where they can directly comment and give feedback on our decolonizing project.
