Delia D. Aguilar, the Jane Watson Irwin Visiting Associate Professor of Women's Studies, gave presentations in the Philippines during the winter break. At Ateneo de Manila University she spoke about the ways in which contemporary U.S. feminism departs from the women's liberation movement of the 70s, and emphasized the importance of such an understanding for feminists in a peripheral formation like the Philippines. At the University of the Philippines, Aguilar and noted Filipino scholar E. San Juan were invited to address the currently pressing subject of global crisis, war, and the academy. 

The University of the Philippines is the premier institution of higher learning in the country where Aguilar received her undergraduate degree and where she taught women's studies courses at the College of Social Work and Community Development.
