Places are used for various reasons whether they be economic, social, political or ideological or a combination of two or all of them. Such uses of place, however, do not happen in a vacuum. They are a part of long historical processes. Their uses are a manifestation of the people’s discursive engagement with differing currents of history and material forces and their ways of stamping their ‘permanence’ in an otherwise world of unmitigated flux, of unsettling impermanences. Thus, places are also about spaces that overlap each other or present some alternate ordering called heterotopias. This paper reads Calvario, a popular town landmark in Mauban, Quezon, along that vein to highlight its heterotopic qualities and engagement with historical processes. In a number of ways, this article is about the town’s history, evoked through the presences of multifarious spaces in one place made by the town’s inhabitants through the years. This article therefore is all about spatializing local history, emplacing varied narratives into one material structure, and thus, contributing to the reassertion of critical social perspective in contemporary social theory and analysis.
