Research and the Writing of Local History

Marcelino A. Foronda Jr.

Discipline: Cultural Studies



The writing of local history in the Philippines as I have had occasion to write elsewhere, has not merited the attention not to say the dedication and efforts of our more notable historians. It has been, and continues to be relegated by and large to souvenir programs of town fiestas and athletic meets, or to volumes commemorating the anniversaries of some city, town, or province.
