The College of Social Science and Development (CSSD) proudly celebrates Heritage Month by fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange with Palawan State University (PSU). The partnership between CSSD and PSU aims to promote cultural heritage and advance research in the field of Philippine studies.
Under a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), CSSD and PSU have joined forces to create a platform for academic cooperation and intellectual growth. The MOA solidifies their commitment to fostering a deeper understanding of the country’s diverse heritage and cultural roots.
The collaboration kicked off with a significant event held on May 3, 2023. CSSD hosted a Lakbay-Panayam, a guided tour and research presentation, at the renowned Presidential Car Museum. Mr. Ryan Tan, curator of the museum and part-time faculty member of the Department of History, led the tour, providing valuable insights into the historical significance of the preserved presidential vehicles.
Following the tour, esteemed faculty members from CSSD and PSU took the stage to share their research findings. Mr. Gregorio Caliguia III delved into the role of researchers in art auctions, highlighting the importance of conserving, contextualizing, and connecting artworks. Ms. Eula Marayan-Permejo presented her research on the experiences of theater actors during the pandemic, shedding light on the resilience and creativity of the industry. Dr. Edelyndon L. Enriquez discussed the cultural practices and rituals of the ancient Tagalog communities.
The collaboration between CSSD and PSU showcases the vibrant and diverse academic community dedicated to preserving and promoting Philippine heritage. By providing a platform for faculty members and students to exchange ideas and research findings, both institutions contribute to the enrichment and development of the field of Philippine studies.
“The College of Social Science and Development is honored to welcome the BA Philippine Studies program of Palawan State University,” expressed Dean Raul Roland R. Sebastian. “This collaboration signifies our collective commitment to celebrating and preserving our rich cultural heritage. We are excited to further strengthen our partnership with PSU and explore more opportunities for collaboration and knowledge-sharing.”
CSSD and PSU’s collaborative efforts not only contribute to the advancement of research but also foster a deeper appreciation for the country’s history and heritage. Through such initiatives, both institutions strive to cultivate a greater sense of cultural identity and instill a profound understanding of the diverse cultural tapestry that makes the Philippines unique.
