Carlos Figueroa, Ph.D., Politics Department, recently gave a public talk titled "Quakers, Political Ecumenism and U.S. Philippine Policy Discourse in the Early Twentieth Century" at Stetson University, Celebration, Fl (May 4, 2015)
Contributed by Carlos Figueroa on 05/28/2015
U.S. Quakers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries engaged in social and political reform activities that included intervening in U.S. insular policy discourses. Hicksite Quaker Albert K.

This talk examined these early U.S. Quaker national policy interventions through Smiley’s Lake Mohonk Conference of Friends of the Indian and Other Dependent Peoples (LMC) to show how both American and Filipino leaders, Quaker and non-Quaker alike, utilized the LMC to assuage the polarizing & competing racial-religious values serving as cultural barriers (broadly characterizing the ‘Philippine problem’) to U.S. Philippine policy development.
