About the writeshop 

The Third World Studies Center (TWSC) launches the 2016 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 and CHED-accredited (A-2, Very Good - Excellent) journal Kasarinlan: Philippine Journal of Third World Studies. The 2016 TWSC Writeshop sustains this academic tradition and more.

The 2016 TWSC Writeshop marks another milestone as it transitions from module-based discussions to manuscript-driven mentoring in the form of intensive yet collegial small-group discussions. The mentors, established scholars in their respective fields and the Kasarinlan editorial staff, will bring into line problematization, researcher positionality and ethics, and crafting meaningful narratives based on empirical work to equip the participants in making a contribution in social science scholarship, i.e., by creating a publishable work. In seeing through the TWSC Writeshop’s goal, the Writeshop culminates with the publication of successful manuscripts in a special issue in Kasarinlan.
