HISTORY WORKSHOP

Professor Christopher Capozzola, History, MIT

“How Filipino Veterans Joined the Greatest Generation, 1945-2009”

This talk draws from Brothers of the Pacific, a transnational history of Filipinos in the armed forces of the U.S. and the Philippines from the 1890s to the present. Focusing on the struggle of Filipino World War II veterans during the last seven decades to obtain equal rights of citizenship and veterans benefits, the talk situates the claims of Filipino veterans within a global politics of decolonization and explores the possibilities—and limits—of transnational political activism during and after the Cold War.
