You're all invited!

The use of maps in the study of history and culture comes with several purposes. Foremost, maps serve as tools for reconstructing the past, to the extent that maps provide records of features, landscape, cities, and places that may not exist anymore or that exist in dramatically transformed form.

The Philippine Map Collectors Society has most recently released the special issue of the Murillo Bulletin, titled “Mapping of Panay”, where the researcher, Atty. Raphael P.M. Lotilla, discussed the naming and mapping of Panay Island from the 16th through the 19th century. Another article in this special issue written by Dr. Felice Noelle Rodriguez discusses the photographic works of Felix Laureano, which captures the way of life of the people of Panay.

In this webinar series, Ang Panublion Museum, in partnership with Capiz State University Roxas City Main Campus Library and the University of San Agustin - Center for Heritage and Indigenous Cultures, brings together these two respected historians to discuss to us the highlights that would enrich our knowledge about history and culture through maps and photographs.

Resource persons:
• Atty. Raphael P.M. Lotilla, Faculty, UP College of Law / former Secretary, Department of Energy
• Dr. Felice Noelle M. Rodriguez, Visiting Scholar, Ateneo de Zamboanga University / former Chair, History Department, Ateneo de Manila University
