The Journal

Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints is an internationally refereed journal that publishes scholarly articles and other materials on the history of the Philippines and its peoples, both in the homeland and overseas.

It believes the past is illuminated by historians as well as scholars from other disciplines; at the same time, it prefers ethnographic approaches to the history of the present. It welcomes works that are theoretically informed but not encumbered by jargon. It promotes a comparative and transnational sensibility, and seeks to engage scholars who may not be specialists on the Philippines. Founded in 1953 as Philippine Studies, the journal is published quarterly by the Ateneo de Manila University.



Call for Abstracts: Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints special issue on Science and Technology Studies (STS)


We invite submissions to Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints to gather critically and theoretically engaged studies of science, technology, and society in the Philippines. We seek interventions that disrupt the ways in which science and technology are deeply rooted in the fabric of everyday life as they emerge effortlessly from objects, spaces, infrastructures, public discourse, and scientific practice.


The field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) consists of a spectrum of inquiries that interrogate the construction of technoscientific knowledge, practices, and social policies. Not merely a study of how things work or how things are designed, STS invests in a precise, empirical, and multi-level analysis of processes that often determine how power, influence, and expertise contribute to the powerful narratives of science and technology as objective and legitimated forms of knowledge.
