by Judith L. Bayog-Tablan
Cagayan de Oro City (11 September) -- TANGUB City in Misamis Occidental is scheduled to host the 28th National Conference on Local and National History on November 29-December 1, 2007.
Under the sponsorship of the Tangub City Historical Commission, in collaboration with the University of San Carlos, Cebu City, this year's conference theme is "Focus on Mindanao and Sulu."
This is the second time Region 10 will be hosting the national conference, the first being at Xavier University, Cagayan de Oro City in 1978.
According to Dr. Bernardita R. Churchill, president of the Philippine National Historical Society Inc. (PNHSI), the conference will look at the research and writing on Mindanao and Sulu and identify gaps that can be addressed by future or further research, situating the region's history in the context of a Philippine national historiography.
The PNHS, the oldest voluntary professional organization devoted to the study and research in Philippine history, was officially organized by Dr. Eufronio M. Alip Sr, and Director Eulogio B. Rodriguez on February 21, 1941.
Those who are interested to attend the conference may get in touch with Dr. Churchill, PNHS president and convener, with mailing address at #40 Matiwasay St. UP Village, 1101 Diliman Quezon City. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Website is http://pnhsi.tripod.com.
