CALL FOR PAPERS
The Filipino Department, the Dalubhasaan ng mga Umuusbong na Mag-aaral ng Araling Filipino (DANUM), and the College of Liberal Arts, De La Salle University, Manila, Philippines, in cooperation with the Aklan State University, are organizing the First International Conference on Philippine Studies (Third National Conference on Philippine Studies) for students, academicians and scholars in the said field. The conference committee will be accepting abstracts concerning but not limited to topics on Philippine culture, language and media. Abstracts on Asian culture, language and media are also welcome.
Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary, and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila University—in partnership with the Rizal Library (AdMU)—presents “Teodoro Agoncillo's The Revolt of the Masses: Text and Context After 60 Years,” a series of lectures featuring Paul Dumol, Vernon Totanes, and Resil Mojares. The event will be on Thursday, December 1, 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., at the Rizal Library (4/f). The lecture is open to the public.
The lectures will revisit the text of Teodoro Agoncillo's The Revolt of the Masses, reconstruct the context in which it was written and published sixty years ago, and re-examine its continuing influence on Philippine historiography. What made Revolt revolutionary 60 years ago? In what ways can it still be considered revolutionary now?
Story, even in today's age of social media, is still king (or queen). More than ever before, the need to tell real and important stories—and tell it in an interesting and engaging manner—is of paramount importance to the public. For advocacy journalists, mastering effective storytelling is even more important. Stories compellingly told give flesh and blood to theory, to analyses, to situationers, and give force to arousing, organizing and mobilizing the public. This panel gathers practitioners from various media, to gain insights on storytelling through both text and image.
