The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies invites you to

a lecture by Dr. Resil Mojares, 12 January (Monday), 4:30-6:00 pm, Faura AVR

The lecture demonstrates the value in analyzing “symbolic action”
(enactments on a symbolic plane of social desires and fantasies) in large
masses of Philippine literary texts, as a way of understanding Filipino
popular mentality.  It takes as its example an analysis of Cebuano short
stories built around the "poor boy-rich girl/poor girl-rich boy" (gugmang
kabus) plot formula, and the meanings that can be drawn from this body of
texts about the realities of class division in Philippine society.

 The lecture is the third in the series as part of the of the master
visiting teacher program of the School of Humanities, Ateneo de Manila

Admission is free.
