New Quincentennial lecture tackles revisiting of history periodization

Dr. Maria Nela Florendo of the University of the Philippines Baguio challenges the monolithic periodization of national history as applied in writing local history. As we approach the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP), let us ponder upon how resistances to Spanish colonial rule and ethnic preferences of time enrich our understanding of the past and our identity.
