The publication of Professor Reynaldo C. Ileto's *Pasyon and  
Revolution: Popular Movements in the Philippines, 1840?1910* by the  
Ateneo de Manila University Press in 1979 was a watershed event in  
Philippine historiography, recently given due recognition with the  
Gawad Tanghal ng Lahi award given to Professor Ileto.

This defining moment in 1979 has reshaped the contours and directions  
not only of Philippine history but also of many other disciplines.  
Professor Ileto's ideas on the writing of "history from below" were  
trail blazing, inspiring an entire generation of Filipino historians  
to critically evaluate historical sources, interrogate long-held  
theoretical assumptions, and adopt fresh perspectives in the study of  
Philippine nationalism and social movements. Deservedly, Professor  
Ileto is one of the most awarded and recognized Filipino historians of  
the contemporary generation.

Beyond the Philippines, *Pasyon and Revolution* has been considered  
one of the most influential books on Southeast Asian Studies by the  
editorial team of Sojourn: The Journal of Social Issues in Southeast  
Asia. It is the only book written by a Southeast Asian scholar and  
published by a Southeast Asia-based university press that found  
inclusion in the prestigious list. Beyond Southeast Asia, the book has  
caused scholars specializing on other countries in other parts of the  
world to take notice of Philippine studies and its relevance to their  
own fields of scholarship.

Over three decades have passed since the publication of *Pasyon and  
Revolution*. This international conference aims to assess the  
influence of Professor Ileto in general, and of Pasyon and Revolution  
in particular, on Philippine historiography, on studies of nationalism  
and social movements, on theories of colonialism and postcolonialism,  
and on area studies and scholarship beyond the Philippines.

Scholars and academics with papers and panels related to, but not  
limited to, the following topics are invited to participate in this  

Historiography: Theories and Concepts
