*Call for papers and participation *
The *Institute of Philippine Culture (IPC)*, School of Social Sciences,
Ateneo de Manila University, invites applications from PhD students in the
social sciences or interdisciplinary programs to submit papers and attend
the *Third (2015) IPC International Summer School for Doctoral Researchers
on the Philippines*. This will be held at the *Ateneo de Manila University
from July 26 to 29, 2015, *with the theme *“Historical and ethnographic
approaches to Philippine culture.”* Given this theme, the IPC Summer School
addresses questions about how historical and ethnographic approaches
contribute to a closer understanding of Philippine social realities, what
principles inform their conceptual and methodological orientations, and
whether these approaches can be extended to other aspects of Philippine

Historical and ethnographic approaches to Philippine Studies will be the
focus of the lectures that will be delivered by the workshop
moderators, *Caroline
Sy Hau* (Professor, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto
University) and *Mary Racelis* (Research Scientist, Institute of Philippine
Culture; and Professorial Lecturer, Department of Sociology and
Anthropology, School of Social Sciences, Ateneo de Manila University)*. *The
program will also include presentations by the students of their papers and
subsequent discussion by the group of participants. The theme as broadly
defined should allow students to relate their work to one or more of the
summer school’s emphases and concerns.

Doctoral students who are enrolled in either a Philippine or overseas
university conducting research on the Philippines may apply. Revised
versions of the papers presented in the Summer School will be considered
for possible publication in *Philippine Studies: Historical and
Ethnographic Viewpoints*.
