Pagdiriwang 2: an online international conference on folklore and heritage

March 3, 2021

The UP College of Social Sciences and Philosophy Folklore Studies Program will be hosting Pagdiriwang 2, an online international conference to mark the commemoration of the 500th year of the introduction of Christianity in the Philippines on March 17 and 18.
The conference is a celebration and a conversation about faith that has been localized and contextualized through intimate and collective acts of devotions. The conference will focus on the transformations and incorporation of Christianity and popular devotions in the cultural and social lives of local populations. Academics and scholars from the Philippines and other countries who have conducted research on the topic have been invited to present in the conference.
This year’s Pagdiriwang is part of the UP Diliman Arts and Culture Month with the theme, “Engkwentro: Barikada Singkwenta at Ika-500 Taon na Pagtatagpo ng Pilipinas at Espanya” and is also organized in solidarity with the 2021 Quincentennial Commemoration of the Philippines.
