Scholars discuss Filipina migrants and transnational families at book salon

 
Filipino student group

"The Department of Sociology & Sexuality Studies held a book salon on Feb. 13 to celebrate the recent publication of Assistant Professor Valerie Francisco-Menchavez’s book, “The Labor of Care,” anchored in the experiences and lives of Filipina migrants and their families in the Philippines. Joining her were SF State scholars and professors Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales (Department of Asian American Studies) and Celine Parreñas Shimizu (Department of Cinema), who commented on the ideas, theories and methods of “The Labor of Care.” In the standing-room-only event, the riveting interdisciplinary conversation among scholars also honored the late Filipina historian and SF State faculty member Dawn Bohulano Mabalon (Department of History) and her contribution to Filipina scholarship and activism. The salon was an alumni event held in recognition of Rachel Kahn-Hut, former SF State professor of sociology."
