During the early part of the 1970s, Filipino American anti-martial law
activists traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to work towards Master’s
degrees in Philippine Studies. Under the instruction of noted
anti-imperialist and anti-Vietnam War activist Daniel Boone Schirmer, they
studied at the Goddard-Cambridge School of Social Change, an experimental
program which also offered degrees on Women’s Studies, Third World Studies,
and U.S. Culture. Within their cohorts, students worked towards a melding
of theory and practice. Together, they experimented with collective
learning models and sought a foundational base of knowledge on the
Philippines that would allow them and their communities to better carry out
their anti-Marcos organizing from the United States. Throughout its brief
existence, the Goddard-Cambridge School of Social Change faced a wide
breadth of institutional challenges, ranging from funding issues, to
conservative backlash, to tensions within their attempts to create a
non-hierarchical (and yet institutionalized) space. While the program
lasted briefly, this attempt to create a different kind of educational
model can help us more fully understand the wide networks of
anti-imperialist and anti-authoritarian activism of the period. Further,
the history of such alternative educational models might offer
possibilities for contemporary pedagogical and institutional orientations.
