Talastasan @ UPB w/ Dr. A.S. Agcaoili: Cultural Nationalism and Philippine Languages

 Posted on Facebook by Junley Lazaga (DLLA, CAC, UP Baguio)

The College of Arts and Communication
University of the Philippines Baguio

Dr. Aurelio Solver Agcaoili
of the University of Hawaii at Manoa

"Cultural Nationalism 
and the Languages of the People of the Philippines:
Towards a Theory and Practice 
of Liberatory Literacy and Education"

The talk addresses the current concerns on the need to revisit several conceptual issues in the Philippines, to wit, cultural nationalism, language diversity, and liberatory literacy and education. Arguing from the framework of emancipatory education, cultural difference, and the question of nation and state, the talk weaves a reasoning that pushes for a rethinking of the Philippine nation-state concept, for a critiquing of the practice of Philippine basic education, and for a revisiting of the constitutive elements of Philippine literacy in the context of citizenship.

Will this be video recorded and posted on youtube or vimeo?

One can hope that the conference will be in English or subtitles available.
