UST Extends Deadline for 2nd National Criticism Workshop
The University of Santo Tomas is still accepting applications to the 2nd J. Elizalde Navarro Workshop in Criticism on the Arts and Humanities to be held on May 23 to 29, 2010 in Baguio City.
The workshop is endowed and organized by the Varsitarian, the 82-year-old official student organ of UST. It is held in honor of the late Nationalist Artist for the Visual Arts and art critic J. Elizalde Navarro, who was art editor and critic-poet of the Varsitarian during his student days. This annual workshop is part of the academic celebrations leading to the 400th anniversary of UST in 2011.
Fellowships will be given to 10 promising young critics who would like to enhance their analytical, research and writing skills.
To be considered for the fellowship, applicants should submit a scholarly, properly documented critical essay (7-12 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font) on any of the art forms (literature, painting, sculpture, architecture, dance, drama, music, etc.) on or before April, 2010.
Manuscripts should be submitted in hard copy and on CD, preferably in MS Word, together with a resumé, a recommendation letter from an academic mentor or a literary/art critic, a certification that the works are original, and two 2X2 ID pictures.
