Keynote by Micheal Burawoy

The Ateneo de Manila University community is invited to the keynote  
lecture to be delivered by Dr Michael Burawoy at the opening of the  
2012 national conference of the Philippine Sociological Society.

It will be held at Escaler Hall on Friday, 19 October. The program  
will commence at 8:30 AM. Dr John Paul Vergara will provide the  
opening remarks.

Michael Burawoy is Professor in the Department of Sociology at the  
University of California, Berkeley; President of the International  
Sociological Association (2010?2014); and Editor of Global Dialogue.  
He will speak on ?The Promise and Danger of Interdisciplinarity.?

Interdisciplinarity has been one of the expressed goals of the  
University, but it has become even more salient with the new  
directions being set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).  
Faculty and administrators may utilize the open forum to engage the  
issue with a leading intellectual and academic.

See you there!
