John Bassett


Biography

I am studying the history of political and social movements in Southeast Asia in the 20th century, with an emphasis on the Philippines. I am broadly interested in the role of public perception and individual experience in the lifecycles of these movements. Before coming to Madison, I worked as an editor for independent fiction and documentary films in New York
