We make the internet our main arena for social interaction and cultural and ideological discourse—how does our doing so resemble participating in a fire-dance?
We celebrate the Bikol region for the spices and sweets that characterize its distinctive cuisine. But how is the richness of these same flavors present in the rhythms and nuances of Bikolano literature?
Our major ethnolinguistic groups each possess a wealth of folklore and popular literature on religious belief. What do all these traditions say about our notions of the divine, the cosmos and the afterlife?
And how can we study, understand and experience Catholic theology in a manner that is uniquely Filipino?
These are the questions on Filipino life, literature and culture that are explored in the four e-books Vee Press has released in cooperation with De La Salle University: Maharang, Mahamis na Literatura sa mga Tataramon na Bikol (Spices and Sweets: Literature in the Bikol Language) by Paz Verdades M. Santos; Sanghiyang sa Mundo ng Internet by Rhoderick V. Nuncio; Mabathalang Pag-aaral by Jose M. De Mesa; and Filipino Religious Consciousness by Sylvia Palugod.
Published by Vee Press for Vibal Foundation under the imprint Academica Filipina Digital, these four e-books are the first of their format to be launched in the Philippines. Written by noted scholars in their respective fields, the four studies not only provide an insightful and expert exploration into the past, present and psyche of the Filipino, but also represent a foray into the future of Philippine publishing.
Vee Press books are available in multiple e-book formats compatible with iPad, Kindle, Sony and other digital readers. Order through Amazon.com or call our sales department at 712 9156 ext. 350 or email us at email@example.com
