Travel Back in Time with Ateneo's "Philippines on the Potomac"

The lecture will be held on August 20.


( They might be 8,000 miles apart, but it seems that the Philippines and the U.S. capital may be closer than you think. Find out the ties that bind the two nations in a talk presented by the Ateneo de Manila University’s Department of Interdisciplinary Studies entitled Philippines on the Potomac: Searching for Filipino History and Culture in Washington, D.C. The lecture will be held on August 20, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Faura Audio-Visual Room, led by husband and wife duo Erwin and Titchie Tiongson.


Erwin, a professor at Georgetown University, and his prizewinning writer wife Titchie embarked on this ambitious quest to find connections significant to Philippine history and culture. The search yielded to more than 200 sites that include former offices of the Philippine Commonwealth.


Reserve a seat by calling 426-6001 local 5340. For more information, visit ADMU’s website.
