Philippines Lecture Series
The Harvard University Asia Center’s 'Philippines Lecture Series' aims to showcase scholarship about—and generate discussion on—the history, politics, economics, public health, society, and culture of the Philippines in order to promote a better awareness and understanding of the place and its peoples. The primary focus of this interdisciplinary series is the Philippines and Filipinos, but speakers also situate the Philippines in the broader context of Southeast Asia and explore its complex transnational connections to East Asia, South Asia, and the global diaspora, including Filipino Americans.
This series is convened by Professor James Robson, James C. Kralik, and Yunli Lou Professor, Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations; Harvard College Professor; Victor and William Fung Director, Asia Center, Harvard University.
