March 24, 2021 14:40 pm

The University of San Carlos through the Department of Anthropology, Sociology and History (DASH) and the Center for Social Research and Education (CSRE) is co-hosting an online forum with the Philippine Social Science Council (PSSC) and the Ugnayang Pang-AghamTao (UGAT) entitled “What’s in a Name? Views from Anthropologists on Lumad” on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 10 am via Zoom and Facebook Live.

This activity highlights the views of anthropologists Dr. Gus Gatmaytan, Dr. Oona Paredes, and Dr. Cherubim Quizon who have worked closely with various Lumad groups in Mindanao. Drawing from their research experience and commitments to Lumad communities, they will flesh out the use of the term 'Lumad' and unpack the politics of naming.

This forum is the first part in a series of on-going discussions spearheaded by UGAT, the professional organization of anthropologists in the Philippines, where faculty members and students from USC’s Anthropology program are active officers and members. The second part will feature the views of leaders of various indigenous peoples in Mindanao. The details of which still need to be finalized.
