PHA 2014 National Conference

In observance of History Month, the Philippine Historical Association is pleased to announce its 2014 National Conference to be held on August 28-30, 2014 at Holy Angel University, Angeles City, Pampanga in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

With the theme “KASAYSAYANG PAMPOOK: PANANALIKSIK, PAGTUTURO AT PAGPAPALAGANAP”, the conference aims to gather historians, history teachers, local history researchers, cultural heritage experts and cultural affairs officers of local government units, to share and be updated on new local historical studies, strategies and best practices in conducting local history research, in teaching local history in the new K-12 curriculum, and in designing projects and programs to propagate local history, culture and heritage.

Local history mirrors the forces that move national consciousness. The Manila-centered national history has been the pattern in the writing of Philippine History until the early 70’s when John Larkin pioneered writing local history with his book, The Pampangans.  The research, writing and historiographical studies of local history provides the materials for teaching it either as a course or an integrative part of teaching Philippine History.

There will also be lectures on Apolinario Mabini to commemorate his 150th Birth Anniversary.

Registration Fee (covers conference kit, copy of Historical Bulletin, snacks and lunch for August 28-29):

Publications

The PHA launched the 2013 issue of its official journal Historical Bulletin on the theme “The Philippines in Asia” at the PHA Annual Conference in Puerto Princesa City. This issue of the Historical Bulletin features the papers presented in the 2012 Annual Conference of PHA held in Iloilo City in September 2012.

Institutional Linkages

The PHA is an affiliate of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP). It sits as a member of the Technical Working Committee chaired by the NHCP which prepares activities to celebrate historical events of national importance. It was also accredited as a member of the Local Historical Committees Network (LHCN) organized by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines.

The PHA is a member of the Executive Council of the Committee on Historical Research of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).



FINANCIAL STANDING

The PHA is financially stable and is able to support operational expenses of its board meetings which are held quarterly and as the need arises. The revenues of the PHA come principally from registration fees in the annual conference, membership dues and the sale of the Historical Bulletin. The PHA receives financial support from the NCCA and the PSSC for its annual conference. The PHA receives support from Vibal Publishing Inc. for conference kit and other materials. However, the PHA needs to generate funds to support expenses incurred in seminars that it holds for free such as the Pocket Lectures which are for teachers of Araling Panlipunan in the National Capital Region.
