Alay at Laya: International Conference on Bonifacio and Mabini
Alay at Laya: International Conference on Bonifacio and Mabini (Philippines)
17-19 April 2014
Web announcement: alayatlaya.nhcp.gov.ph/?p=1#more-1
In 2013 and 2014 the Philippines will commemorate the 150th birth anniversaries of two leaders of its struggle for independence from Spain and the United States: Andres Bonifacio (born 30 November 1863), who founded the revolutionary movement against Spain; and Apolinario Mabini (born July 1864), who led the first cabinet of the Philippine Republic and resisted American imperialism. To honor both men and the movements they engaged in, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines will hold an international conference in Manila on 17-19 April 2014.
The conference offers an opportunity for scholars from the Philippines and abroad to share new knowledge about the Filipino anti-imperialist struggle in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a way of commemorating the lives and sacrifices of Andres Bonifacio and Apolinario Mabini.
Abstracts of individual papers and proposals for panels and for roundtable discussions are invited. The deadline for proposals is 15 October 2013. Proposals (500 words) must be accompanied by a brief bio-data (200 words).
