WRITINGS BY OVERSEAS FILIPINO WORKERS

It is interesting to read and analyse what overseas workers write about- their experiences say and reveal loads. Working in a country other than one’s own always has its ups and downs. Often the *downs* get written about more than the *ups*. In this Talk Prof Lily Tope will explore the writings of Filipino workers in Singapore and help us better understand their feelings.

About Lunchtime Talks

It is so wonderful to host a Series of Talks which have come to be recognized as one of the *signature* offerings we are proud of- the Wee Kim Wee Centre Wednesday Lunchtime Talks. Some of you may recall that this Series has now been going on for 10+ years and through the years we have had a glittering cast of speakers/presenters. Once again, we are happy to offer a line-up which speaks for itself! As many of you have said to me, it is good to know who is appearing when so that we don’t miss out on those speakers/presenters we particularly want to hear- and get to know!

 

So, please mark your diaries, calendars, etc and be sure to attend at least a few of these stimulating sessions which have proven so popular over the years.And, always know that Lunch is served to all who register!
