Kritika Kultura (KK) is presently known as an open-access  
international online journal of language and literary/cultural  
studies, and as a lecture series that brings in distinguished scholars  
from its international network to the Ateneo to present their latest  
research. Now, KK is also a multimedia website that goes beyond  
archiving the journals: the new KK website will make widely available  
videos of The Kritika Kultura Lecture Series.

Softly launched on July 19 at the Department of English, Ateneo de  
Manila University, where KK is based, the new KK website sheds  
previous static content for dynamic content like news, features, and  
its download library of KK journals and KK Lecture Series abstracts,  
lecture notes, videos, audio recordings, and photos. The staff is  
currently building the download library, which should contain all KK  
lectures since 2002 when KK was founded.

When fully operational, the new KK website will expand and  
internationalize the audience of the KK Lecture Series, presently  
confined to live attendance in venues at the Ateneo. Like the journal,  
access to the website and its content is free. The lecture videos may  
also be viewed in YouTube Edu where universities around the world also  
upload their best lecture videos.

The KK website project is in line with the Department of English?s  
efforts in celebrating the Ateneo Sesquicentennial and making the  
Ateneo more visible in the international academic community.

Now in the website is the newly-released KK13, the August 2009 issue,  
which includes articles on Jose Garcia Villa (by E. San Juan, Jr.),  
Salvador P. Lopez (by Rafael A. Acuna), Transnational Postmetaphysics  
(by Leela Gandhi), Indonesian nationalist writer Pramoedya Ananta Toer  
(by Yohanes Hartadi), Translation in Contemporary Filipino History (by  
Portia Reyes and Ramon Guillermo), and "Pantayong Pananaw" (by Ramon  
Guillermo, Mayfel Joseph Paluga, Aaron Rom Moralina, Jose Rhommel  
Hernandez). It closes with poems by award-winning poet Paolo Manalo.
