literature, nation and globalization

I'll be chairing (and acting as the rapporteur for) the panel on “Philippine Literature in the Post-Modern Age” scheduled on December 9, 2007 (Sunday) from 10:30-12:00 noon at the Ablaza Hall of the National Art Gallery of the National Museum of the Philippines (along P. Burgos Street in Ermita, Manila).

We have a great panel filled with interesting and accomplished folk: Charlson Ong, Vim Nadera, Krip Yuson, and Carlo Vergara. Expect funkiness as we explore the topic, from comic books to performance poetry to speculative fiction.

It's all part of PEN's 50th anniversary conference on December 8 & 9, 2007. The historic program and its literary sessions revolve around the theme “Literature, Nation, and Globalization.”

It's literally a Who's Who of wordsmiths, including F. Sionil Jose, Bienvenido Lumbera, Malou Jacob, Marjorie Evasco, Frank Rivera, Cirilo Bautista, Ricardo de Ungria, Merlie Alunan, Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo, Jaime An Lim, Amelia Lapena-Bonifacio, Leoncio Deriada, Rosario Cruz Lucero, Wendell Capili, Ian Casocot, Butch Dalisay, Mike Coroza, Jose F. Lacaba, Rody Vera, Ophelia A. Dimalanta, Gemino Abad and many other sterling creatives.
