Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints is an internationally refereed journal that publishes scholarly articles and other materials on the history of the Philippines and its peoples, both in the homeland and overseas. It believes the past is illuminated by historians as well as scholars from other disciplines; at the same time, it prefers ethnographic approaches to the history of the present. It welcomes works that are theoretically informed but not encumbered by jargon. It promotes a comparative and transnational sensibility, and seeks to engage scholars who may not be specialists on the Philippines. Founded in 1953 as Philippine Studies, the journal is published quarterly by the Ateneo de Manila University.
Forthcoming articles in Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints
Teresa S. Encarnacion Tadem, “Technocracy and the Politics of Economic Decision Making during the Pre–Martial Law Period (1965–1972)”The technocrats in the administration of Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos prior to martial law (1965–1972), rather than apolitical as portrayed in the literature, were sensitive to politics of economic policy making, particularly as some policies affected negatively the interests of some of the country’s traditional elites.
Maria Kristina S. Gallego, “Philippine Kinship and Social Organization from the Perspective of Historical Linguistics”
Based on reconstructions of proto-Philippine terminologies, this article characterizes early Philippine kinship as bilateral with possible quasi-lineages, favoring achieved over hereditary chiefdom. These features support the reconstruction of the proto–Malayo-Polynesian system advanced by George Peter Murdock (1949).
