Dear Dr. Bautista:
The Third World Studies Center (TWSC) launches the 2017 TWSC Writeshop in continuing its commitment to build the capacity of early career researchers, junior faculty members, and graduate students in the social sciences. As a premiere social science research center in the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of the Philippines-Diliman, the TWSC continues to develop critical, alternative paradigms to promote progressive scholarship by undertaking pioneering research and publishing original, empirically-grounded, and innovative studies.
Originally meant as a capacity-building workshop on social science research in 2010, the TWSC Writeshop transformed into a unique academic publication platform. Since 2014, successful Writeshop participants were not only given the opportunity to interact with experts from the academe and the publishing industry, but also the opportunity to produce a publishable manuscript for the TWSC’s internationally refereed journal Kasarinlan: Philippine Journal of Third World Studies.
In this regard, we would like to share the attached publicity material (one poster) for your reference. The writeshop will be from 25 to 27 October 2017 and the deadline for applications is on 31 July 2017. We would appreciate it if your office can share it with your respective networks as well as faculty members and graduate students who may be interested. The writeshop is free and a subsidy in the form of reimbursements may be availed of by successful applicants. For inquiries, please call +632 920 5428 or email email@example.com. Thank you for your support for the Center’s activities.
