A seminar-workshop designed to help Filipino teachers to better understand the relevance of the historical background behind Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo will be conducted on 26 to 28 April 2017 at Telengtan Hall, University of Asia and the Pacific, Pearl Drive, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

In “Teaching Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo for Wisdom and Citizenship,” the focus for this year’s conference will be on Rizal’s life during the writing of his novels. The speakers seek to enhance high school teacher’s knowledge and competence of Filipino teachers, as well as Rizal college professors on updated research on the Spanish colonial period – in order to equip the teachers with the proper context that will empower them to confidently tach the two novels in their classes. Meanwhile, workshops will highlight chosen chapters in the primary texts that reflect our national hero’s beliefs about what a true Filipino should be.

The speakers are Clement C. Camposano, Marya Svetlana T. Camacho, Paul, A. Dumol, Arnel E. Joven of the History Department, and Prof. Jorge Mojarro of Instituto Cervantes de Manila.

There will be sessions on in-depth discussions on (1) Rizal’s Life as a Journey Towards a Sense of Nation, (2) Rizal’s Life During the Writing of Noli Me Tangere, (3) Reactions to Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere, (4) El Filibusterismo and Beyond, and (5) Rizal and the European Romantic Literature. Palanca laureate Joachim Emilio Antonio will also present his award-winning play The Floret Road, on Jose Rizal and His Women. The fee is P3,500 covering kits, meals, and certificates for the three-day activity.
