Fernando Nakpil Zialcita

Research Associate

Dr. Zialcita has an M.A. in Philosophy from the Ateneo de Manila University, and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Hawaii. He is Full Professor at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the Loyola Schools, Ateneo de Manila University and heads the Cultural Heritage Studies Program at the same. Though from Manila, much of his field research took place among farming communites in the Ilocos, Northern Luzon. Lately, however, he has shifted his focus to street research because of his interest in urban heritage and regeneration. Indeed he is active in groups advocating the preservation of built heritage. Though interested in the Hispanic World, he has also explored the world of Southeast Asia. He thus writes on the interface between the Southeast Asian and the Hispanic worlds in domains of Filipino culture such as traditional architecture, cookery and popular Christianity. He is the Project Director of IPC 297 (Preserving and Protecting Philippine Heritage Architecture).
