Philippine historians at a glance
While my previous article dealt with Philippine history being in dire need of better public relations as well as how to remove the ‘stigma’ of learning and enjoying the study of Philippine history (see, Vol. 4, No. 12, June 16-30, 2008), I think it is only fitting that I continue to build on this discussion. This time I will be looking at those who study Philippine history (I make no distinctions between the amateur and professional scholars) and hopefully, make a case that these poor individuals are definitely not released into the world to bore everyone to death. In fact, these individuals actually challenge our perceptions of our past to help us make a connection with our present and to shape our future.
