The former Center for Social History (CSH) under the Research Institute for Culture and
Language of the Office of the Vice President for Research, Extension, Planning, and
Development is now renamed the Center for Philippine Studies (CPS). Founded by the
nationalist educator and former PUP president Dr. Nemesio Prudente, CSH is one of the
established centers that began as a research institute in 1986. Renaming the Center in
2021 is not a simple shift in direction, nor does it disregard the history, success, and
production of the former Center, but rather to further strengthen and promote the
convergence of fields of knowledge and practices that cross communities. The PUP Center
for Philippine Studies is an attempt to contribute to national and international
discourses towards developing a repository of research and creative production in
Philippine Studies that can be utilized not only by the academe but more so by the
During the pandemic crisis, the transition of activities into the digital space has
become a significant challenge for students and teachers. As a research center, it is
best to meet such challenges by launching programs that will provide development
opportunities. One of the Center’s primary mandates is to develop a repository of
research and creative production in Philippine Studies that is freely accessible and
beneficial to the public. With the academic institutions’ current state of leaning
into the digital space due to the pandemic crisis, there is an increasing need for
online teaching resources and research materials. It is also a form of democratization
of knowledge that should be promoted by universities such as PUP that provide services
to the greater majority of Filipinos.
“Sudlanan” is a Cebuano word meaning storage or container. It is rooted in
the word “sulod” which means inside. “Sudlanan,” in the
project’s context, is a vessel of knowledge highlighting Filipino ideas, culture,
and society. Part of the Center’s advocacy is to feature local knowledge and
perspectives that bind academic fields and communities. Sudlanan, is the Center’s
first step in developing a repository of research and creative production.
This project is also an attempt to contribute to the promotion of Philippine Studies to
create a “critical mass” or critical readers, academics, and the public that
is part of what Dr. Ramon Guillermo called an “autonomous community” of
Philippine Studies that communicate on a national level and will thus become a conduit
to build a strong network of other centers of Philippine and Southeast Asian Studies
across the globe.
