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?
