Call for submissions: 11th International Conference on Philippine Studies

This is a press release from the International Conference on Philippine Studies.

The International Conference on Philippine Studies (ICOPHIL XI 2020) is now accepting submissions of paper and panel abstracts and proposals for roundtable discussions for the 11th staging of this quadrennial event to be held in Alicante, Spain, on September 21 to 23, 2020.

Organized by the Philippine Studies Association, Inc., International Council for Philippine Studies Conferences, and Universidad de Alicante, the 2020 edition of ICOPHIL is going to be hosted by the Aula Magna, Facultad de Filosofia y Letras of the Universidad de Alicante.

The theme is "Philippine Studies Across Borders, Across Disciplines: Collaborations, Interventions, Linkages."

As in the past ICOPHIL conferences, which have been held alternately in the Philippines and elsewhere every 4 years, ICOPHIL 11 aims to be the most inclusive international gathering in the field of Philippine Studies, transcending boundaries between and among academic disciplines and geographic regions.

A fruitful increase in collaborations and linkages among Filipinists in recent years, enriched by the participation of academics from other parts of the world such as Japan, Australia, Southeast Asia, and Africa has expanded to multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary engagements on topics about the Philippines.

The suggested themes for individual and panel presentations and roundtable discussions are the following:

Abstract proposals of about 250 to 350 words should be submitted in doc or docx format to, cc Bernardita Churchill at, Isaac Donoso at, Clement Camposano at, and Elizabeth Enriquez at
