On March 27th, 2015 The PSG awarded the Grant Goodman Prize in Historical Studies to Nicanor G. Tiongson. The award committee chaired by Paul Rodell (Georgia Southern U) with members Vina Lanzona (U Hawaii Manoa), Resil Mojares (U San Carlos and former awardee) and Norman Owen (U Hong Kong) recognizes the significance of Dr. Tiongson’s career as a scholar and writer in Philippine historical and critical studies focusing on the field of popular culture. This lifetime achievement award comes with a $2000 prize and is awarded every two years, and is selected by a committee of peers. To read the award citation authored by Prof. Mojares as well as Prof. Tiongson’s response shared during the awarding ceremony in Chicago, visit the Goodman Prize page. The award announcement also appears in the May 2015 issue of the Asian Studies Newsletter. With an additional gift this past year from the estate of the late Grant Goodman, the PSG hopes to continue this tradition of honoring our esteemed colleagues such as Prof. Tiongson and those who came before him who have brought so much to the field of Philippine historical studies. Once again, many congratulations to Prof. Tiongson!
