About the writeshop

The Third World Studies Center (TWSC) launches the 2017 TWSC Writeshop in continuing its commitment to build the capacity of early career researchers, junior faculty members, and graduate students in the social sciences. As a premiere social science research center in the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of the Philippines-Diliman, the TWSC continues to develop critical, alternative paradigms to promote progressive scholarship by undertaking pioneering research and publishing original, empirically-grounded, and innovative studies.

Originally meant as a capacity-building workshop on social science research in 2010, the TWSC Writeshop transformed into a unique publication platform for early career researchers, junior faculty members, and graduate students in the social sciences. Since 2014, successful Writeshop participants were not only given the opportunity to interact with experts from the academe and the publishing industry, but also the opportunity to produce a publishable manuscript for the TWSC’s internationally refereed journal Kasarinlan: Philippine Journal of Third World Studies.

The 2017 TWSC Writeshop sustains the manuscript-driven mentoring format in the form of intensive yet collegial small-group discussions with mentors, established scholars in their respective fields and the Kasarinlan editorial staff. The intensive three-day session will bring into line problematization, researcher positionality and ethics, and meaningful narratives based on empirical work to equip the participants in making a contribution to social science scholarship, i.e., a publishable work. In seeing through the TWSC Writeshop’s goal, the Writeshop culminates in the publication of successful manuscripts in a special issue in Kasarinlan.
