  • 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.

    Special Topic

     
    Ivermectin. Melatonin. Lianhua Qingwen. Vitamin C. Zinc. Suob — can any of these help us prevent COVID-19 or help us get better if we have the infection?

    Where do we get our information and who should we believe when there is so much confusion and contradicting views on the use of therapeutic agents?

    In this webinar, join us as we address and sieve through facts and fiction around drugs and medicines for COVID-19. We will talk about the critical role that frontliners play in addressing misinformation.

    Webinar #49

    April 23, 2021
    “COVID-19 Frontliners: Kamusta Na Kayo?”
    Special Topic

    A year ago, a small group gathered to pull together the first STOP COVID DEATHS webinar hosted by the University of the Philippines. At that point in time, close to 24 frontline doctors and nurses had already died from COVID-19. The intention of the webinar series was to overcome fear, promote good practices, and quickly disseminate information to all health practitioners and facilities — whatever was the evolving knowledge on management and treatment of COVID-19 based on the experience of world-class
    Philippine experts.

    Currently, there are 945,000+ cases, 16,000+ deaths, and 141,000+ active cases in the Philippines. More than a million overseas Filipino workers have returned, with more than 15,000 positive for SARSCoV2. There have been almost 50 Stop COVID Deaths webinars featuring the leading clinicians and experts from various disciplines. We move forward, we persevere, but how are we doing in terms of our own well-being?

    At no other point in time in recent history have medical and health frontliners been subjected to the trauma of multiple deaths on a daily basis, the inability to comfort or touch patients or their family members, loss within their own circle of co-workers, if not death in their families.

    In this webinar, PGH Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, Dr. Anselmo Tronco leads the discussion on how frontliners seek and continue to find meaning in serving patients despite the adverse conditions they face. COVID-19 survivor and PGH Spokesperson Dr. Jonas del Rosario will share his personal journey through COVID-19 and back, and how he has coped with the grief of losing both his parents to the pandemic; Ardie Lopez, who composed the anthem of the webinar (that recently won an award) will speak on his own expression of faith and hope in these difficult times.

    Opening Remarks by Health Secretary Francisco Duque III and UP President, Prof. Danilo L. Concepcion.

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected!
    Together we can STOP COVID DEATHS!

The 45th Jose Joya National Artist awards and exhibition on May, will also be part of the celebration. There will also be an art exhibit of visual artists and designers in the Visayas called “Yutang Tabunon: Currents and crossroads of art and history”.

    One particular highlight is the cosplay contest where students will be portraying Philippine historical and folklore characters through submitting photos and videos online. “This is an attempt to go back to the last several hundred years in the Philippines,” the university’s statement said.

    All of these events will be launched formally on April 23, 2021 at 3pm through UP Cebu’s official social media pages and website where students and everyone else are enjoined to view the livestream. “We, as a people, must understand our shared past and advance a holistic and inclusive history of the nation,” their statement added.

  • Susumaton
    2:30 PM-4:30 PM
    April 28, 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.

    April 30, 2021
    “Sa Bahay Na Lang: Home Care for Mild COVID-19”
    Special Topic

    New cases of COVID-19 are still at high levels. Many cases are mild and can be managed at home. What are the home management steps that family members need to know? What should be done when more than one member of the family has COVID-19? What should patients do to take care of themselves? What are the danger signals to watch out for – indicating that hospitalization might be needed?

    In this webinar, STOP COVID DEATHS Webinar focuses on home care for mild COVID-19 and how the Philippine General Hospital COVID TeleGabay Project and The Medical City COVID Home Care Program are reaching thousands of patients who prefer to stay home when they test positive for COVID-19, as presented by Dr. Jonas del Rosario of PGH and Dr. Amiel Dela Cruz of TMC. Reactor is Former Health Secretary Paulyn Jean Ubial, who will also share how other organizations are supporting families and health workers on the ground. Opening Remarks by UP Manila Chancellor, Dr. Carmencita D. Padilla and Closing Remarks by UP College of Medicine, Dr. Charlotte M. Chiong.

    Be a source of reliable information for friends, family and neighbors who have mild COVID-19 and can manage themselves at home. Join us this Friday, April 30th at 12 noon!

    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected!
    Together we can STOP COVID DEATHS!
