IPC International Summer School for Doctoral Researchers in the Philippines

The IPC International Summer School for Doctoral Researchers on the Philippines is an annual IPC program (from 2013 to 2015) whereby very promising PhD students in the social sciences or interdisciplinary programs from around the world are invited for an intensive series of workshops, seminars, and lectures. With the theme “Historical and Ethnographic Approaches to Philippine Culture,” the IPC Summer School addresses questions about how historical and ethnographic approaches contribute to a closer understanding of Philippine social realities, what principles inform their conceptual and methodological orientations, and whether these approaches can be extended to other aspects of Philippine studies. The IPC covers the travel and lodging expenses and most meals of the Summer School participants, who had been chosen by a Selection Committee which reviewed the documents submitted by the applicants, including a never-before-published paper appropriate to the theme of "Historical and Ethnographic Approaches to Philippine Culture."

The four-day IPC Summer School includes paper presentations by each of the ten to twelve doctoral researchers on their own work and subsequent discussion by the group of participants. Two leading scholars in Philippine Studies moderate the discussion, provide feedback on the paper of the Summer School fellows, and deliver public lectures on their own research. The roster of IPC Summer School moderators includes Filomeno V. Aguilar, Jr. and Resil B. Mojares (2013); Patricio N. Abinales and Ramon Guillermo (2014); and Caroline Hau and Mary Racelis (2015).

The Summer School fellows are expected to revise their papers based on the suggestions offered during the workshop sessions, with a view to improving the papers for submission to and possible publication in the journal Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints.
