Two New Works on Kalinga

Markus Balázs Göransson has just completed his thesis for his MA in Conflict Studies and Human Rights.  The title of his research is "The Power of Peace Pacts in Struggle: The role of the bodong system in the Kalingas’ mobilisation against the Chico River Dam project in the Cordillera Mountains, the Philippines."


Meanwhile, Tom Kips is delivering a public lecture on the decline of Kalinga tattooing tradition on 8 October 2009 at the CSC Research Laboratory (see below). Tom  is pursuing his MA in Cultural Anthropology.


Both are graduate students of Utrecht University and research affiliates of UP Baguio's Cordillera Studies Center (CSC).


Short reviews of their works will be posted on this blog later.
