Center for Babaylan Studies, Sonoma State

Recently, the Center for Babaylan Studies at Sonoma State put out a Call for Papers for a conference to be held April 17 & 18,  2010 at Sonoma State.  Below, an excerpt from the Mission Statement:

We are passionate about the significance of the babaylan in our communities and world today and would like you to join us in bringing about this very unique and special gathering through your efforts and presence.

We believe in the power of the Indigenous Soul and the Indigenous World View, as embodied by primary/ land-based babaylans in the Philippines and contemporary babaylan/ culture-bearers in the Philippines and the diaspora, to provide a narrative that restores a sense of wholeness, beauty and integrity to our pagka-Pilipino.

Here is the Call to Presenters:

If you are a scholar/educator, artist (visual, literary, performance), culture-bearer/ advocate/ activist and if you deem that your work is Babaylan-inspired and Babaylan-informed, please submit a 250-500 word abstract describing the content of your paper and a paragraph about how you think it fits into the conference themes mentioned above.

For panel presentations, please submit the names of the members of the panel, the title and 250-500 word abstract for each presentation, and the name of the panel moderator.

Deadline for conference abstracts is Nov. 15, 2009.

More detailed information can be found on the Center for Babaylan Studies website.
