Tungkol Saan? (About)

The Philippine Studies Series: Academics + Action + Art is a series of activities that highlight academic work, community action and art, providing a venue for the discussion of Philippine issues in Vancouver. We aim to contribute to the Filipino community in Canada and help sustain a Vancouver-based network of scholars and community members interested in research on Philippine topics. The Philippine Studies Series (PSS) is funded by the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the University of British Columbia.

PSS has been active since February 2011, hosting art exhibits, film screenings, workshops and more. New participants are always welcome.

Volunteer opportunities are available and you don’t need to be affiliated with UBC to join. If you have any further inquiries, feel free to send an email to ubc.pss[at]gmail.com.

  1. Congratulations on this initiative; I just heard of it.
    As for further resource persons on the Philippines on campus there is Professor Emeritus Prod Laquian from the School of Planning, and Professor Ian Townsend-Galt, School of Law. Prof. Laquian knows everything about the Philippines, and Prof. Townsend-Galt is an expert on the disputes in the South China Sea.
    I used to show “Rustling of Leaves” in my classes at Langara, but not for some time now.

    Good luck with this series.
