Philippine Studies Association 2018 National Conference (Deadline Mar 5, 2018)


The Reshaping of Philippine Studies: Contending viewpoints, voices, and knowledges

September 26-28, 2018
National Museum of the Philippines
P. Burgos Drive, Rizal Park, Manila

In the era of global mobilities and fluid identities, Philippine Studies is constantly reframed, negotiated, or contested by scholars and academics. New theoretical and methodological directions emerge that reflect tensions between home-grown and diasporic scholarship, contending visions of nation, or new positions of identification. Mindful of these competing viewpoints, voices, and knowledges, the Philippine Studies Association (PSA) invites original presentations that engage with, explore, or bear upon, these directions.

Pre-formed panels are preferred.
