CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 

 

39th Annual Conference of the Ugnayang Pang-AghamTao

(UGAT/ Anthropological Association of the Philippines)

9-11 November 2017

Capitol University, Cagayan de Oro City

 

 

THE STRUGGLE FOR RIGHTS:

ANTHROPOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON WHAT IS, AND WHAT OUGHT TO BE

 

The UGAT cordially invites you to its 39th Annual Conference at Capitol University, Cagayan de Oro City, from 9-11 November 2017. The central theme of the conference is on human rights, and it will thus offer academic panels, round-table discussions, distinguished lectures, films, and special talks that consider ‘rights’ as a lens by which to weigh the realities of people’s daily lives against what they believe they are entitled to in their lives, in terms of goods or benefits, services or resources, or respect and human dignity. Implicit here is the assumption that there is a difference between what is and what ought to be; a difference that demands analysis in terms of context and causation, and understanding in terms of appreciation of peoples’ perceptions of their situation and their agentive responses thereto. This project is timely and relevant, given the unsettling times and spaces that our people now occupy.   

 

We seek to foster further critical reflection upon the state of our country, people, and communities today; encourage theoretical and methodological refinement in the work of academics, activists, development workers, media practitioners, policy-makers, legislators, government officials, educators, health practitioners, and other actors; and perhaps provide a platform for dialogue on the possible role of anthropologists and other scholars and practitioners in light of the presentations and discussions in the conference.

 

Conference Convenor: Atty. Augusto B. Gatmaytan, PhD
