Beyond the festival buntings

Mariano Marcos State University College of Arts and Sciences Social Sciences Dept. Sociology Week 2012 Forum (Theme: Beyond the Banderitas: Festivals in Focus)

I was supposed to be on my way to Cagayan and Nueva Vizcaya this morning, but I’m glad the roadtrip was postponed at the last minute, so that I was able to avoid stressing out people to wait outside the door of the Mariano Marcos University Training Center while focusing my thoughts as one of the panel of discussants at the sociology forum organized by the College of Arts and Sciences Social Sciences Dept. Sociology Guild  for the Sociology Week. With all the festivals proliferating here and there,  the theme: “Beyond the Banderitas: Festivals in Focus” I believe was worth dissecting. What are your thoughts?

Sociology and Philosophy professor/newspaper columnist/socio-political blogger Herdy La Yumul was the brains behind the event, according to the MMSU Sociology Guild adviser, Prof. Maria Angelica Salas.

My felllow discussants were Dr. Edwin Antonio, also a blogger and the secretary of the Subcommission on Cultural Communities and Traditional Arts of the National Commission on Culture and the Arts, and anthropologist and consultant (Province of Ilocos Sur) Miss Maria Lourdes Ingel.
