1st Carcar Lecture Series

| February 11, 2013

      The USC Cebuano Studies Center in cooperation with the St. Catherine School of Carcar and the City of Carcar conducted the first of the Carcar Lecture Series last January 26, 2013 at St. Catherine School from 1:00-4:00 pm.

      The Carcar Lecture Series is an outreach program of the Cebuano Studies Center geared towards raising the community’s awareness and appreciation of their cultural and literary heritage.

      The project headed by the Cebuano Studies Center of the University of San Carlos will run for six months with each month featuring two or three writers of Carcar.

      To showcase Carcar’s impressive roster of writers, faculty members of the Literature and Humanities section of the Department of Languages and Literature and guest speakers will present on a specific writer and his/her oeuvre.

      In January, Sam Harold Kho Nervez delivered a talk on the legendary Marcel Navarra and his literary legacy in his presentation, “Wars Within Without: Social Neurosis in Marcel M. Navarra’s Short Fiction” and Cindy Velasquez presented on the incomparable Maria Kabigon and her contributions to Cebuano literature in her lecture entitled “Pasumbingay sa Gugma: Deciphering Love in Manding Karya’s Advice Column in Bisaya.”
