Creative writer and UP professor Jose "Butch" Dalisay Jr. gave a lecture on December 9, 2013 on the topic, "Teaching the Young Filipino Writer" for students of the BA English (Creative Writing) program. Prof. Dalisay said that writing is more than a field of study, that it is an art and the loftiest of human endeavors that serves to enlighten the mind. On the question of whether creative writing be taught, he said that every creative writing student has at least one good story or essay within them, and that the job of the teacher is to enable the student to write it. He reported that young and good writers continually emerge but that most do not go beyond safe limits or push their story to the farthest ends of their narratives. He relayed the advise of his own professor, Franz Arcellana, to "not forget the narrative thread". He also observed regretfully that many student writers focus on subjects that are far removed from human experience. He reminded them said that writing is a "form of engagement with the larger human community", and that writing is like "making a love letter, one that is open to appeal, negotiation, or reconciliation". He exhorted them to start writing in their youth because many great writers, such as Rizal or Edgar Allan Poe, did most of their significant writing when they were young. With regard to the question of how to begin as a professional writer, he advised them to join literary contests of which there are many. The faculty members of the program who were present--professors Ricardo de Ungria, Antonino Salvador de Veyra, Jhoanna Lynn Cruz-Daliling, John Bengan, and Instructor Lysette Maurice Sandoval--presented Prof. Dalisay with a Certificate of Appreciation for his talk.

Webcast: Understanding Complex Dynamical Systems

Former UP Mindanao Associate Dean Niceto Poblador served as lead convenor of "Understanding Complex Dynamical Systems: A Forum on Social and Institutional Change". The forum was held in UP Diliman and was webcasted throughout the UP System. In UP Mindanao, the webcast was attended by faculty and students from the social sciences, the natural sciences and mathematics, management and agribusiness economics. The resource persons gave their insights into changes in today's world and how it can be managed for social good from the perspective of their different disciplines. Poblador, a professor of business economics, in his talk, "Finding a Common Framework for the Study of Social and Institutional Change", said complex systems have the common properties of non-linearity (e.g. Typhoon Sendong), dominant design, bifurcation, emergence and swarm behaviour. Professor of marine biology Gisela Concepcion expounded on, "Physico-chemical Principles and Evolutionary Biology as Basis for Social and Institutional Change". She said society can learn from nature because social phenomena has similarities to natural phenomena such as evolution, morphology, adaptation, and  competition in the environment and resiliency. Cooperation is also seen in molecular biology which creates robust niches and products through synergy. Similarly, there is predictability and influence to the environment through molecular and morphological diversification. Professor of literature Jose Neil Garcia spoke on, "The Literary Practice of Complexity". He said that language constitutes all thought and that there are no unmediated facts. Because of this, he called for the adoption of post structuralism to liberate the multitude of possible readings in language, its non-heirarchical character, its ambiguity, its wealth of interpretation, and paradox. Professor of economics Ernesto Pernia talked on, "The Dynamics of Population, Poverty, Inclusive Growth, and ‘Sweet Spot’". He presented hard economic and population data and said the population growth will eventually reach the sweet spot wherein the dividends of population growth can be realized such as manufacturing and job creation, education and skills for the employability of the labor force, among others. Anthropology professor Felipe Jocano, Jr. spoke on, "Culture, Complexity and Change", and of the butterfly effect, wherein there is order out of seemingly unrelated events, of the fluidity of daily life, and how a community arrives at a decision with culture as the guiding mechanism. Prof. Michael Tan served as open forum facilitator and reactor, as well, with Helen Yap, Ma. Luisa Camagay, and Fidel Nemenzo. The convenors agreed on the continuation of the discussion and proposed the creation of a "virtual" center for complexity science or paradox.
