Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it.
Now I understand 
why the old poets of China went so far
and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
"The Old Poets of China" by Mary Oliver

Thanks to the efforts of the UP Third World Studies Center who co-sponsored some of the lectures and conferences held at the UP Asian Center, the following video recordings have been uploaded to TWSC's YouTube page, including two of Benedict Anderson's lectures @ UP Asian Center. This page also features recorded lectures of UP Asian Center faculty, or guest lecturers.
