WELCOME TO PULITIKA AT LIPUNAN!
This blog is humbly dedicated to Professor Resil Mojares. I can only bow to the man for his brilliance in observing the life and ways of the Filipino. This weblog, an accompanying blog to my original RADIOACTIVE ADOBO, is my humble tribute to his life’s work.
I am not worthy to even tie the laces of his shoes.
Dr Resil Mojares, Visiting Professor, National University of Singapore (NUS)
Resil B. Mojares has a Ph.D. in Literature from the University of the Philippines. Except for brief stints in universities in the U.S. and Japan, he has always been with the faculty of the University of San Carlos (Cebu City), where he was founding director (1975-96) of the Cebuano Studies Center, a pioneering local studies center in the Philippines.
He has authored books in Philippine history, literature, and politics, the most recent of which is WAITING FOR MARIANG MAKILING: ESSAYS IN PHILIPPINE CULTURAL HISTORY (2002). His current project looks at the emergence of the modern disciplines in the Philippines through the careers of three Filipino intellectuals (Pedro Paterno, T.H. Pardo de Tavera, Isabelo de los Reyes), whose writings span the years 1876-1933 in fields like history, anthropology, linguistics, and sociology.
