The Aquino Assassination Thirty Years After: A Lecture Series


This lecture series reflects on the assassination of Benigno Aquino,  
Jr., an incident which triggered a chain reaction leading to the EDSA  
People Power Revolution of 1986.  Clearly a significant moment in  
recent Philippine history, the assassination of Aquino is a subject  
that deserves further study.  The thirty years that separate the  
present from the event should allow room enough for a critical review  
and analysis.  The anniversary also provides the occasion for the  
school to reintroduce it to students who are too young to have  
witnessed it or appreciate its significance.

What were the conditions leading to the event?  What has been its  
legacy?  What lessons remain relevant in the present time?  How has it  
been appropriated or co-opted by various groups?

The schedule of the lectures is as follows:
