  • GAD Talk: #BEaWARE: Know About Sexual Harassment in the Cyberspace
    12:00 AM
    April 6, 2021

    As part of the Sexual Assault Awareness Month this April, the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) Office of Gender Concerns (OGC) in collaboration with the Diploma in/Master of Social Work and Diploma in Women and Development programs of the UPOU Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) will be having the first-ever GADTalk podcast series to be launched on 6 April 2021. Various topics will be released once a month, starting from April until December 2021, which mainly focus on sexual harassment in the cyberspace. The first episode will be released via the UPOU Network’s website and Spotify.

    Atty. Eric Paul Peralta, Director of UPLB Gender Center and Assistant Professor of UPLB College of Human Ecology will serve as the resource speaker for the first podcast episode titled: #BEaWARE: Know About Sexual Harassment in the Cyberspace. This podcast is a question and answer (Q&A) type of discussion and will cover topics mainly on the definition of terms, laws and policies related to online sexual harassment. This event aims to address the UPOU’s target of mainstreaming gender and prevent sexual harassment in the virtual classrooms and landscape.

    Everyone deserves personal safety regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. UPOU stems from this belief, and seeks to promote open communication and be an advocate for positive social change, and empower individuals.

  • “Healing Power of Postcolonial Indigenous Women: Lessons from Aeta Women Healers in the Philippines and Implications”
    9:00 AM-11:30 AM
    April 7, 2021

     

    The U.P. Center for Women’s and Gender Studies and the UP CIDS Decolonial Studies Program invite everyone to our webinar, “Healing Power of Postcolonial Indigenous Women: Lessons from Aeta Women Healers in the Philippines and Implications” by Dr. Rose Ann Torres. This is part of the UPCWGS lecture series Site of Convergence: Weaving Tapestries of Knowledge, and the event will be held on April 7, 2021 from 9:00am to 10:30am (Manila Time) via Zoom.

    Register here: https://tinyurl.com/UPCWGSHEALINGPOWER

    Dr. Torres will talk about her research study, which focuses a reconsidered gaze and empirical lens on the healing practices of Aeta women healers as well as the lessons, insights, and perspectives which may have been previously missed. The research attempts not to be ‘neutral’ but instead to be an exercise in participatory action research, and, as such, hopefully brings a new space of decolonization by documenting Aeta women healers’ contributions in the political and academic arena. It is an original contribution to postcolonial, anti-colonial, and indigenous feminist theories, particularly through its demonstration of the utility of these theories in understanding the health of Indigenous peoples and global health.

    Dr. Torres is currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology in the Department of Social Science at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John, Canada. Dr. Torres is the principal investigator of two research projects entitled: “Caring for Others and Uncaring of the State: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Mental Health of Filipino Health Care Workers in Canada” and “The Role of Indigenous Healers in Addressing Covid-19 pandemic”.

  • The Marvelous: History and Literature
    2:30 PM-4:30 PM
    April 15, 2021

     

    The UP Visayas Tacloban College (UPVTC) celebrates Literature Month 2021 with the theme “Quinientos Katuig nga Pagsurat han Filipino nga Kalibutan.”

    The month-long celebration coincides with the quincentenary of the first circumnavigation of the world. Included in the schedule of events are literary discourses, a dramatic performance, and a storytelling session.

    Tsika-LIT, the first feature, is a continuation of the literary conversations started as part of UP Tacloban’s celebration of National Arts Month (February). The Tsika-LIT episode for Literature Month will feature students from the BA Communication Arts (BACA) program discussing selected poems. It will be broadcasted via Bátì UP Tacloban, the college’s community internet radio.

    Next is a conversation about the idea of “history as literature” with insights drawn from the MA thesis of Assistant Professor Efmer E. Agustin. This third “Mana-bana” episode of Bátì UP Tacloban, entitled “The Marvelous: History and Literature”, is part of the conversation series Kaagi, Kabilin, Kultura, one of Bátì’s essential programs.

    On the third week of April, the celebration will spotlight an experimental mediatized verbatim theatre performance. “XXX-sakto nga mga Pulong,” directed by Assistant Professor Popo T. Amascual engages with the elements of a theatrical form to expose stories of online harassment. This show will involve students’ talents taking the Theatre Arts strand of the BACA program.

    Rounding out the Literature Month celebration is “Susumaton,” a pre-recorded storytelling by the students of the Literature 170 (Waray Literature) class of Assistant Professor Jessa A. Amarille. The presentation illuminates the importance of oral narratives, including local myths, legends, and folk tales, which the students retrieved and documented themselves.

    The official social media account of the Division of Humanities will serve as the primary platform for this series of events. As we continue to navigate these trying times, celebrating the arts is certainly one way to keep us afloat.
