Upcoming study tour – Tracking Indigeneity in the Philippines

Are you interested in learning about indigenous identity, place, and politics in the Philippines this summer?

Tracking Indigeneity in the Philippines is a 15 credit point third year subject held between November 2018 and February 2019. The subject promotes engagement by Indigenous and non-indigenous students and scholars at La Trobe with their Philippine counterparts, to engage with issues of indigeneity, environmental protection and the politics of identity. You will visit Ateneo de Manila University, Benguet State University, and the University of the Philippines’ Cordillera Studies Center. The study tour will also include site visits to indigenous communities, including some day-walks to hill/mountainous areas in the Cordillera, and migrant communities around migrant districts.
