History Dept. News for August 2016
Paul Rodell contributed a short remembrance titled “Harold Isaacs: A Benevolent and Open-Minded Leader,” to a special Tributes issue of the Journal of Third World Studies, Vol. 32, No. 2 (Fall 2015) pg. 59-63 in honor of the recently deceased founder of the Association of Third World Studies. He also assisted the journal’s acting editor in developing the special issue. Rodell presented the paper “Charles Lindbergh and Early Philippine Environmentalism” at the 10th International Philippine Studies Conference hosted by Siliman University in Dumaguete City, the Philippines, on July 6-8. Finally, he made a Skype presentation to a class at Stockton University in New Jersey on April 26. Prof. Guia Calicdan-Apostle invited him to speak with the students in her course titled “Philippine Culture and History” since his book Culture and Customs of the Philippines was the main text used in the course. The Skype chat gave the students an opportunity to ask questions of the author of the book they read during the semester.
