Philippine Studies 216: The Filipino Diaspora is one of the graduate courses on Philippine Studies offered by the UP Asian Center’s MA programs in Philippine Studies. The course description of PS 216 is as follows: “the concept of “diaspora” as a product of Philippine migration experience, understood via multidisciplinary perspectives, models and approaches. The course examines “Philippine existence” beyond the borders of the modern nation-state, visits selected diasporic sites, and studies location-specific issues and challenges.”
Dean Santarita specializes in Indian studies, migration studies, Philippine culture and society, maritime history and Southeast Asian political economy. Dr. Santarita, who obtained his Ph.D. in South Asian Studies from the National University of Singapore, handles several graduate courses at the UP Asian Center, including those on Regionalism and Community Building in Asia, Modern Asia, and Asia in Antiquity, among others.
