Initial Event: Meeting with Philippine Studies Collaborators in Vancouver
Date: 4-6pm, March 4, 2011
Venue: Liu Institute for Global Issues Board Room, University of British Columbia View Map
This will be an informal gathering of researchers specializing in Philippine studies, Filipino students and professors, community workers, and artists, who are interested in building a Vancouver-based network of people interested in Philippine issues. The event will be an opportunity for all interested parties to introduce themselves and establish traction, and to discuss potential collaborative works in and outside of the University of British Columbia. The event will also be the venue where the plans for the other upcoming events to be held at the Liu Institute will be finalized. Volunteer tasks such as blogging, public relations, and coordination with other potential individuals and groups will also be discussed during this meeting.
Join us over puto, kutsina (Philippine rice cakes), and drinks, and meet fellow researchers on the Philippines. Interested parties are encouraged to confirm their attendance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is sponsored by the Liu Institute for Global Issues.
