College of Liberal Arts


June 26-27, 2009





Filipino Ideas across Disciplines

In and Beyond the Philippines


The Philippine indigenization of knowledge and thought had prospered within the five decades or so after the Second World War. This had led to the emergence of several disciplinary movements that studied Filipino identity/ies and nationhood, such as Pilosopiyang Filipino, Sikolohiyang Pilipino, Bagong Kasaysayan, Panitikang Pambansa, Pilipinolohiya, and Aghamtao.


At present, we can only ponder which among these movements have remained; what other discourses they have spawned, both locally and internationally, as they studied and debated on the unfolding of the Filipino thought; and how do the present graduate students and experts from the various disciplines confront their intellectual legacy?


This conference aims to invite graduate students to explore and examine these theoretical, foundational, philosophical, methodological debates inherent in their various disciplines; to encourage them to envision how their disciplines would converge towards inter/multidisciplinary status; as well as to map out the trajectory of Filipino thought amidst the vibrant discourses and conditions of orientalism, globalization, global economic problems, and many others.   The conference also aims to provide a venue for dialogue and sharing of knowledges and experiences between the graduate students and the leading local experts in the Social Sciences, Humanities and the Natural Sciences.


The conference is open to all graduate students who are currently taking up their M.A./M.S. or Ph.D. (or other equivalent degrees) in any discipline within the Social Sciences, Humanities and the Natural Sciences. New M.A./M.S. and Ph.D. holders are also invited.
