Call for Papers and Participation: Summer School for Doctoral Researchers on the Philippines

School of Social Sciences, Loyola Schools
Ateneo de Manila University

*Theme: Historical and ethnographic approaches to Philippine culture*

June 1-4, 2014
Ateneo de Manila University
Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines

*Call for papers and participation*
The Institute of Philippine Culture (IPC), School of Social Sciences,
Ateneo de Manila University, invites applications from PhD students in the
social sciences or interdisciplinary programs to submit papers and attend
the *Second (2014) IPC Summer School for PhD Students in Philippine Studies*.
This will be held at the* Ateneo de Manila University from June 1 to 4,
2014, *with the theme *"Historical and ethnographic approaches to
Philippine culture."* Given this theme, the IPC Summer School addresses
questions about how historical and ethnographic approaches contribute to a
closer understanding of Philippine social realities, what principles inform
their conceptual and methodological orientations, and whether these
approaches can be extended to other aspects of Philippine studies.
Historical and ethnographic approaches to Philippine Studies will be the
focus of the lectures that will be delivered by the workshop moderators, *Dr.
Patricio N. Abinales *and *Dr. Ramon Guillermo*.

The program will also include presentations by the students of their papers
and subsequent discussion by the group of participants. The theme as
broadly defined should allow students to relate their work to one or more
of the summer school's emphases and concerns.

Doctoral students who are enrolled in either a Philippine or overseas
university conducting research on the Philippines may apply. Revised
versions of the papers presented in the Summer School will be considered
for publication in *Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic

The IPC will cover travel and lodging expenses, and meals during the Summer

The paper should include a clearly delineated research problem, a
background on the topic and a review of related literature, the theoretical
approach(es), methodological approach(es), findings, and conclusions of the
study. It should be typed as a Microsoft Word file, formatted to print on
