Beschrijving van het evenement
Yugtu-an is a book club gathering, discussing a book written by Filipina/x/o writers.

Over dit evenement

Mabuhay (Welcome)! Thank you for being here! (Tagalog: Salamat dahil nandidito ka)

The word "Yugtu-an" is a "made up" word by the organizer to make the word a verb. It is from a Tagalog word "yugto" meaning act or stage. (may also mean chapter depending on the context)

Join us each month for stimulating and nurturing, informal (relax & friendly) discussion of books focussing on a wide variety of books written by Philippine-authors ranging from children’s books, history, case-studies, relationships, culture, health, poetry, real-life stories and classic literature.

Curl up on the couch, OR COOK WITH US (if scheduled), grab a snack and that "fita or skyflakes", pour themselves a glass of wine or "lambanog" if available ;), or just listen and learn with us!

Yugto is about embracing identity through reading and community. More reasons why JOIN our bookclub? (click "join" to be part of the pamilya/community)

BOOK OF THE MONTH:

For the months of June-July 2021 we will be reading "Muslims in the Philippines" by Cesar Adib Majul.

NOTE: Philippine-authored books are hard to find in Europe or maybe even in US or other parts of Asia or UAE.

We encourage you to purchase your book from an independent bookseller, or at our YUGTO ONLINE BOOKSTORE or borrow from the library or check an online archive. (Please let us support our locals and small businesses)

Here are the helpful links: Unfortunately it's all sold out anywhere in EU

Please check the catalogue of the library near you via https://www.worldcat.org/

ABOUT THE BOOK:

At bottom, the Muslim resistance against Spain in the Philippines was not an isolated or insignificant phenomenon but an essential part of the general resistance of all Muslim peoples in Malaysia against Western Imperialism, colonialism, and Christianity. In an important sense, the sultanates were articulations of a wider social entity, the Islamic society in the Malaysian world. It is within this context that the history of Moro Wars should be seen to be better understood.

…History books in the Philippines tend to lay emphasis on events in other islands and glorify national heroes from such areas, as if the history of the Philippines is only that of people who had been conquered while the history of the unconquered ones does not merit a share in the history of the Philippines. Possibly, with greater tolerance, intensive scholarship on all levels, deeper and wider moral perspectives, and a greater appreciation of the concept and implications of a pluralistic society, a future generation of Filipinos would consider the struggle of the Muslim South as part of the struggle of the entire nation—and the epic exploits of its heroes may well be the nation’s heritage.
