PHILIPPINE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION TO HOLD INDEPENDENCE DAY FORUM ON THE BIRTH AND NAMING OF THE NATION


Recently, a partylist congressman filed a bill to create a commission to rename the Philippines because our nation's name came from our colonizers. This happened as people debated historical facts concerning the birth of the Nation as we celebrated Independence Day. In light of this, the Philippine Historical Association, in partnership with the Philippine Historical Association, Order of the Knights of Rizal - Sucesos Chapter and Gateway Gallery will hold its annual Independence Day Colloquium with the theme "Controversial Issues: On the Birth and Name of the Nation."

 Dr. Emmanuel Calairo, president of the association, will speak on the topic "Paglilinaw sa ilang tala sa araw ng kalayaan noong ika-12 ng Hunyo 1898" which will also deal on the other contesting dates of Philippine Independence while Prof. Xiao Chua, P.R.O. of the association, will talk about "The Myth of the First Eight Provinces (or why we don't need a ninth ray) and other issues on the Sun of the flag and the name of the Nation." However, in her talk "Memory and Event as History," Dr. Milagros Guerrero, past president, will argue that the Cry of the Revolution in 1986 is the real birthday of the Nation and will also talk about the relevance of the issue in today's current events. Dr. Ma. Luisa Camagay, editor of the Historical Bulletin, will sum up the forum's important points and will give her reaction. The forum will be moderated by Prof. Jonathan Balsamo, secretary.

 The colloquium will be held on 24 June 2017, Saturday, 9:00 am-12:00 nn at the Gateway Gallery, Gateway Mall, Cubao, Quezon City. No registration fee although guests are requested to donate old history books for the Gateway Gallery's reading corner. First come, first served.

Previous Independence Day colloquia were held at Aguinaldo Shrine, Kawit, Cavite (2007); Casa Real Shrine, Malolos, Bulacan (2008); National Historical Commission of the Philippines, Manila (2010); University of Batangas, Batangas City (2011); Kalinga Apayao State College, Tabuk City, Kalinga (2012); NCCA Manila (2015); and PUP Sta. Mesa, Manila (2016).

 

PHA holds Journal Article Writing Workshop



 
The Philippine Historical Association conducted a one-day journal article writing workshop last 15 June 2017 at Palma Hall, University of the Philippines Diliman. 

 Lectures were given in the morning session. Dr. Ma. Luisa T. Camagay discussed “Why Write for a Scholarly Journal” and Mr. Joel F. Ariate Jr. talked about “Ethics in Writing and Research”. Dr. Camagay is a professor emeritus at UP History Department and editor-in-chief of Historical Bulletin, the official journal of the Philippine Historical Association. Mr. Ariate is a university researcher at the Third World Studies Center, UP Diliman. 
 
 

 The workshop in the afternoon session was facilitated by Prof. Gerardo Los Banos, deputy director of UP Press. Five conference papers were submitted to the workshop for discussion: Colonial Vocabularies as Historical Sources: The Concepts of Good Governance in the Early Kapampangan Society by Ian Alfonso (National Historical Commission of the Philippines); Bangsa: A Historical And Cultural Discourse On Moro Ethnic Polity, Nationhood And Martial Culture by Jonathan Catubig (Pantukan National High School, Compostela Valley Mindanao); Pyesta At Kampanya: Ugnayan Ng Kultural at Pulitikal na Tradisyong Pilipino by Jefferson Sadera (Columban College, Olongapo); Iyang Tabing Mong Taluki, O Maria: Ang Tradisyon Ng Pagtataluki At Ang Simula Ng Pagbuo Ng Mga Pamayanang Kristiyano Sa Valenzuela by Danilo Lumabas (DepEd Manila); and Social Justice in Hindsight:  Agrarian Problems in Central Luzon and Government Response During the Commonwealth Era in the Philippines by Fernando A.
