International Curriculum Consultation, March 7

without comments

The Philippine Studies Series organizers would like to thank all the attendees of the 1st Meet and Greet last March 4! We will be sending the minutes of the meeting soon.

Following the concerns raised during the meeting about the absence of a Philippine Studies course/programme at UBC, we would like to invite you and your friends to attend the International Curriculum Consultation organized by the UBC International Students Association happening tomorrow, March 7, from 5-7pm. This is a great opportunity to express our concerns to the UBC international community, senate and faculty. We hope to see you there!

Always wanted a more international aspect to the UBC courses? Wish you could learn Swahili? Want to major in International Health? Come out to a discussion on the Internationalization of the UBC curriculum and voice your concerns and suggestions in the presence of UBC Senate and Faculty members. The opportunity is here. To participate or not to participate, that is the question.

Pretty in Pink. Bright colors cover the front walls of shanties in Metro Manila, in a futile attempt by the local government to mask the "eyesore" of unregulated urban housing.

Initial Event: Meeting with Philippine Studies Collaborators in Vancouver

Date: 4-6pm, March 4, 2011

VenueLiu 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 ubc.pss@gmail.com.

This event is sponsored by the Liu Institute for Global Issues.
