FILIPINO, MUSLIM FILIPINO, AND CHINESE INTERACTION IN COMMERCIAL AND FORTUITOUS ENCOUNTERS: DATA COLLECTION FOR A STUDY OF SITUATIONAL ETHNICITY
Project Director:   Ma. Lourdes Bautista
Funding Agency:  University Research Council

The project aimed to gather data on interpersonal interaction among and between Filipinos, Muslim Filipinos, and Chinese in two maximally contrasting situations:  Commercial encounters, which are relatively purposeful, structured, and also potentially conflict-producing, and fortuitous encounters, which, being accidental meetings between friends or strangers, are relatively purposeless, unstructured, and also potentially more solidarity-producing. The specific end result of the study is an article discussing substantive and methodological findings on situational ethnicity, with the project directors (Dr. David Wu and Dr. Geoffrey White of the East-West Center) editing the resulting monograph.

Key words: Muslim Filipinos, Chinese, situational ethnicity, commercial encounters, fortuitous encounters

 

TEACHING AND RESEARCH IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES IN METRO MANILA UNIVERSITIES: AN EVALUATIVE STUDY
Principal Investigator:             Jennifer Lauby and Rolando Galano
Funding Agency:                    University Research Council

The project sought to determine the focus or perspectives of different universities in Metro Manila in their teaching of and research in the social sciences.  The project output is “state of the art” papers for each discipline covered.  The papers describe current trends in the disciplines and attempt to suggest areas in which more work is needed. The disciplines studied are Economics, Psychology, and Sociology-Anthropology. The project specifically aims to investigate Metro Manila undergraduate and graduate programs in the social sciences in terms of their orientations to the theoretical and policy application aspects of their disciplines.

Key words: social science teaching and research, Metro Manila undergraduate and graduate programs, theoretical and policy application
