Theme: Philippine Studies for the 21st Century: New Meanings, Critiques and Trajectories
The 8th International Conference on Philippine Studies (ICOPHIL) aims to provide a forum for scholars engaged in research on the general field of Philippine Studies. Reflecting on developments and discourses that shed light on Philippine realities in a global era, this International Conference hopes to reconceptualize Philippine Studies and chart new directions for the 21st century.
The Program Committee invites conference presentations
from Philippine Studies Association members, affiliated societies, and local and foreign scholars in all disciplines. The Committee encourages creativity and innovation with regard to both intellectual content and presentation. In addition to panels, formats including poster sessions, thematic workshops, roundtable discussions, and other departures from traditional formal paper presentations are encouraged. The Committee particularly welcomes interdisciplinary or border-crossing proposals that complement
or depart from conventional historical, chronological, geographic and disciplinary boundaries. Younger scholars are especially encouraged to participate.
Proposals should be submitted to the 8th ICOPHIL Secretariat at the Philippine Social Science Council via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (632-924-4178 or 632-922-9621)
by 15 November 2007. Proposals must include a 150-word abstract of the panel/paper as well as the name, affiliation
and contact details of the proponent. Complete panels by potential chairs will be given priority but individual
proposals will also be considered.
