HumDiv faculty members present papers in Melbourne

Division of Humanities faculty members, Ms. Julie Prescott and Prof. Jude Vincent Parcon, presented their research papers at the International Research Forum on the Philippines (Constructing Philippine Modernities) in La Trobe University, Melbourne, Victoria on November 11-12.

Ms. Prescott's paper, "Cinematic Representation of Adaptive Identity in Modern Philippine Society: Brillante Mendoza's Serbis and Tirador," examines Mendoza’s on-screen adaptions of everyday Filipino life and looks at how the societal representations that are shown may be understood and interpreted in ways that are parallel to the methods in documentaries or historical films.

On the other hand, Prof. Parcon’s research, "The Plaza and the Ilonggo Narratives: Exploring the Communication Process in the Ilonggo Public Spaces,” brings to light what comprises the Ilonggo’s usual exchange of narratives in public spaces and whether these public spaces foster a more unrestricted fashion of communicating.
