GED0102 – The Life and Works of Rizal
Rizal’s works and the story of Rizal’s life are staples of Philippine basic education.

In this course, students will ask, and hopefully answer: What were Rizal’s social and political beliefs? Why did he hold these beliefs and what influenced his thinking? How has he been appropriated over the past century?

Insights into these questions will be arrived at by employing close reading of the texts by and about Rizal, reflections on and concretizations of these texts, class discussions, and research. It is hoped that these insights will lead to a fuller understanding of the self as Filipino in the 21st Century.
