The University of the Philippines Baguio will inaugurate its PhD in Indigenous Studies Program on 31 August 2021 headlined by a lecture, “Following in the Footsteps of Activists: An Overview of Indigenous Studies,” by Canadian history professor Dr. Carolyn Podruchny (York University, Toronto, Ontario). As a Visiting Professor, she is slated to teach IS 301 for AY 2021-2022. 34 applicants have been accepted to the program.

Below is the abstract of Professor Podruchny’s talk:

This talk traces the emergence of Indigenous Studies programs out of global movements for Indigenous rights. Using examples primarily from the Philippines and Canada, the presentation argues that the field should maintain its activist roots and continue to keep Indigenous well-being and community connections at the forefront of its priorities. Indigenizing university is an example of how Indigenous Studies can both bolster Indigenous ways of knowing to nurture Indigenous sovereignty and chart new paths forward for promoting Indigenous rights.
