Author Cecilia Brainard Gives a Talk on UBEC: CEBU REIMAGINED, Cebuano Studies Center


Hi, I'm giving a zoom talk for the Cebuano Studies Center, as part of their Vicente Sotto Lecture Series.  I'm hoping you can forward this information to teachers, students, and those interested in Philippine literature. If you're in the media, I hope you can plug this lecture in your column.

It should be a lively talk about the background of my mythical setting Ubec, and I'll have a few slides about Cebu and some people who inspired my writing. 

Thank you. And I hope you are all safe.. 

From the Cebuano Studies Center:

After a brief hiatus, the Vicente Sotto Lecture Series will resume with a lecture by renowned writer Cecilia Brainard on February 19, 2022 from 10:00 -11:30 AM, Philippine time.

NOTE: Philippine time; Sat. Feb. 19, 2022, 10-11:30 a.m. is California time: Fri, Feb. 18, 2022, 6 -7:30 pm.

In her lecture titled "Ubec: Cebu Reimagined" Cecilia Manguerra Brainard talks about how she created her mythical setting of Ubec, which she uses in many of her short stories and her three novels: When the Rainbow Goddess Wept, Magdalena, and The Newspaper Widow. She explains how creating this mythical setting freed her up to reimagine Cebu and its inhabitants. She talks about some of the fictional characters that were inspired by people of Cebu.
