Narrating the Dictator(ship): Social Memory, Marcos, and Ilokano Literature after the 1986 Revolution

Roderick Galam

This article inquires into the social memory of Ferdinand Marcos and of his dictatorship in the literature written in the language of his home region, Ilocos, in the period since his downfall during the 1986 People Power Revolution. The novels Saksi ti Kaunggan (1986-1987) by Juan S. P. Hidalgo Jr. and Dagiti Bin-i ti Kimat (1995) by Clesencio B. Rambaud are used as indicators of changing narrative social memories of Marcos in Ilokano literature. Hidalgo’s novel exemplifies the Ilokano writers’ ‘loyalist’ memory of Marcos, whereas Rambaud’s novel indexes attempts to reassess Marcos and the legacies of his dictatorship. This article seeks to contribute to the literature on the social memory of Marcos’s military regime; looks into the braiding of literature, memory, and the nation; and examines the constitution of memory in gender.–Galam
