About Bong Mendoza
Bong Mendoza is a faculty member of the Department of Political Science, University of the Philippines (Diliman) and is primarily interested in Philippine politics and political economy as well as political philosophy and global affairs. He used to write for Business Day (covering the finance beat) and the online edition of Inquirer.
Following the death of his wife, Rosalie, last April 2013, he went back to photography (digital, this time) and started dabbling in poetry. Starting this year, he started integrating images with verse to create photopoems. He hopes to continue doing so even after he returns to handling courses in political science and international relations this coming August 2014.
