      the emphasis is on critical literacy and citizenship; in
      scholarship, the emphasis is on interpretative approaches. Focus is
      on the literary/cultural and language/linguistic frames in which

      acts with larger socio-political and intellectual implications
      especially for Philippine or other Asian contexts.

      language and literature in society, with particular attention to its

      developments informing the study and teaching of language and
