It is already the second decade of the 21st century, yet women, Muslims and communities thriving in the illicit sectors remain marginal if not totally ignored in efforts to write the official national narrative. Why this has been overlooked remains unexamined even by historians themselves. This talk suggests that the difficulty in expanding the narrative by bringing in these themes, has to do with their antipodal relations to that of the nation-states.

About the IPC Summer School 

The IPC Summer School for Doctoral Researchers on the Philippines is an annual IPC program where the most promising PhD students in the social sciences or interdisciplinary programs from around the world are invited for an intensive series of workshops, seminars, and lectures. The theme of the 2014 International Summer School is “Historical and Ethnographic Approaches to Philippine Culture.” With this theme, the Summer School addresses questions about how historical and ethnographic approaches contribute to a closer understanding of Philippine social realities, what principles inform their conceptual and methodological orientations, and whether these approaches can be extended to other aspects of Philippine studies. This year's IPC Summer School moderators are Patricio N. Abinales, PhD and Ramon Guillermo, PhD.
