題："At Home in the Cordillera Wilds: The Letters of Maud Huntley Jenks, 1901-1903"
Mrs. Jenks was the wife of the famous American anthropologist Albert Jenks who carried out an extensive study on the non-Christian tribes of the Philippines, particularly, the head-hunting tribes of the uplands. As subjects of study, the "natives" were later on sent to the U.S. and became the biggest ethnic tribe at the St. Louis Fair of 1904. Mrs. Jenks accompanied Albert Jenks the whole time he was in the Philippines while also helping out in her husband's anthropological mission and writing letters back home to her family.
The lecture will explore the travel accounts of Mrs. Jenks as it underscores her conceptions of "home" vis-a-vis the colonial Philippines and her home in Wisconsin.
