Philippine Studies at SOAS

Philippine Studies at SOAS is a forum for Philippine–related teaching, research and cultural production in the UK and Europe. Established in part by a Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs grant to the Centre for South East Asian Studies in 2017, the PSS Committee develops and coordinates academic research and teaching on the Philippines and functions as an organising centre for conferences, public lectures, film screenings and language classes. It is also an aggregating hub for Philippine-related information on current academic and cultural events, student resources for grants and scholarships, and a networking database for Filipinistas in the UK and Europe.

As a global hub for advancing Philippine studies and culture in the United Kingdom and Europe, Philippine Studies at SOAS is an expanding public resource for creating relationships with partner institutions in the Philippines, the rest of South East Asia and beyond.
