Tropic Zine Issue 2
Tropic Zine is a forum for critical engagement with contemporary culture that seeks connections between Hawaiʻi and the tropics worldwide. The emotional, social, and political narratives of the Islands are the foundation from which they build new connections between peoples and places of tropical diaspora. Imagine the publication as a dynamic web of relations, simultaneously drawn together and repelled by experiences of place that embraces chaos, queer modes of thinking, discontinuities, and hybridity.
Tropic Zine Issue 2 seeks to decolonize, deconstruct, and reimagine the Filipinx diaspora by posing a series of questions about what it means to identify as, and to be, a contemporary citizen in an age of movement and dispersion. Rather than speaking to national identity, the editorials present complex, entangled, multi-generational stories of place. More than half of the contributors are from Hawaiʻi, but they are located all over the world.
