Clod Marlan Krister Yambao

Position: PhD FellowClod Yambao w


Academic Interests:

Clod’s research interest can be found in the conjuncture of Humanities and Social Sciences. Broadly, his research  explores the contemporary (infra)structures, and structuration of the value(s) of political time in the context of postcolonial violence and global neoliberal precarities. He investigates these structurations by looking at the intersections of  time/ temporality, aesthetics and critical theory (with special emphasis on theories of vitality), and  creative actions. 

His research project is part of a larger intellectual curiosity and investigation on the aesthetics and political ontology of the “other” of politics namely, the unspeakable and silenced, the disappearing and invisible, and the still, inactive and inertia.  

Clod is also a faculty member of  the Department of Art Studies, College of Arts and Letters, University of the Philippines where he specializes and teaches  bachelors and graduate courses  in aesthetics and art theory, perspectives in art history, contemporary culture, mass and popular culture, postcolonial and “non- western” theories of art, queer and gender studies, and studies of the everyday life.
