Filipino American Studies at Skyline College

Some mighty interesting things going on at Skyline College, where Liza Marie S. Erpelo is Assistant Professor.

First of all, there is apparently a Filipino American Studies Program.

Then, there’s the Kababayan Program, which Liza coordinates. I’d been hearing about this program for years but just stumbled on the website recently.

Two new courses focusing on the Filipino experience are being offered this fall:

Music 665 BA: Traditional Kulintang Music of the Southern Philippines
Master Danongan Kalanduyan
T Th • 12:35 – 1:50 pm • Room 1-115 • CRN #90210 • 2.0 units

English 104 AK: Applied English Skills for Cultural Production
(a.k.a. “The Pilipino Cultural Night Class”)
Liza Erpelo
T Th • 2:10 – 3:25 pm • Room 2-111 • CRN #90209 • 1.0 – 3.0 units

This year’s Pilipino Cultural Night will feature Master Danongan Kalanduyan. English 104AK students will earn college credit for helping to put together this once-a-year cultural event.

Liza’s also going to be teaching English 110: Composition, Literature & Critical Thinking with an all-Pilipino line-up of texts– whoa!

Here’s the reading list:

M. Evelina Galang, One Tribe
Jaime Jacinto, Heaven Is Just Another Country
R. Zamora Linmark, Primetime Apparitions
Barbara Jane Reyes, Gravities of Center
Brian Ascalon Roley, American Son
Marianne Villanueva, Mayor of the Roses
