20th Annual Manila Studies Conference, Moved to July 28 and July 29, 2011

The 20th Annual Manila Studies Conference scheduled to start July 27 was cancelled in due to the severe weather conditions brought on by “Juaning. ” We have rescheduled the two-day conference to start July 28 when, hopefully, “Juaning” would have left the Metro Manila area and we would have better weather. The second day will be on Friday, July 29, and both days will be at St. Scholastica’s College. The  program remains the same, except for a few changes to accommodate the commitments of a few speakers. We hope to see you tomorrow.
