Intimate Encounters: Filipina Women and the Remaking of Rural Japan

By Lieba Faier | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book is about the central role that relationships play in the production of cultural meanings—a fitting topic given the extent to which this book is itself a product of my relationships with others.

First and foremost, my gratitude goes to those I interviewed in Japan and the Philippines. In the interest of respecting their privacy, I refrain from mentioning them by name. However, I hope this book goes some small way toward expressing the respect and appreciation I feel for all who shared their lives and stories with me.

There are also those I met through my volunteer activities in Tokyo during the mid-1990s who introduced me to many issues facing Filipina and Filipino migrants in Japan. I am thankful to all and in particular to Carina Morita, who throughout the years has been a confidante, advisor, reader, and, above all, friend. Her support and input has been invaluable in countless ways. I also thank Sister Celine, Sister Celeste, Sister Lourdes, and Father Lari, four activist-clergy without whose introductions, trust, and support I would never have been able to conduct my research. I learned much from witnessing the love and commitment they extend to their communities.

Special thanks also go to Kamari Clarke and Kathy Chetkovich, who were wonderful interlocutors as I completed this book. Both offered feedback on multiple drafts and gave much appreciated encouragement. Jun Uchida, Jordan Sand, Miyako Inoue, Mariko Tamanoi, Jody Blanco, and Anjali Arondekar graciously read chapters and provided useful input.
