July 1998 : Exhibit commemorating centennial of Phillipines-U.S. relations : "Thinking of 100 Years: Historical Notes From Filipino Americans in Ann Arbor" was at the Ann Arbor District Library on S. Fifth Ave. July 11-31. The intention of this exhibit was to participate in the celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the Declaration of Philippine Independence from Spain. Various historical and cultural objects were exhibited in order to "reflect how individuals from the local community could think about a hundred years of history." The District Library's multi-purpose room was used for a series of lectures on Saturday afternoons in conjunction with this event. http://www.umich.edu/~urecord/9798/Jun24_98/brief.htm

June 19, 2000 - Francisco Nemenzo, President, University of the Philippines, 1999. Lecture: "The Philippines: Deterioration of a Nation-State?" Nemenzo lectured on the crisis the Philippine government was going through at that time, in relation to Muslim insurgency. http://www.umich.edu/~urecord/9900/Jun19_00/27.htm

Oct. 1995: lecture by Roger Bresnahan, professor in the American Thought and Language Dept. at Michigan State University: "Themes and Contexts of Philippine Literature." This lecture series on Philippine Literature in translation, discussed several main themes in Philippine literature. The goal was for attendees to "gain knowledge and the skills of criticism to apply to further reading in the country's literature." http://www.umich.edu/~iinet/csseas/newsletter/SepOct1995.html

WINTER '02 : PHILIPPINE STUDIES INITIATIVES : In partnership with the University of the Philippines Alumni Association of Michigan (UPAAM), PSG was successful in raising the funds necessary to sponsor a credited lecture series for University of Michigan students in the Winter '02 semester. This credited series is one large step towards the PSG's ultimate goal for a Philippine Studies program.
