Prof. Gonzales Joins Social Communication Meet in Thailand

Date Posted: Jun 2, 2009 at 03:26:56 AM

Prof. Edward Gonzales of the Foreign Languages Department together with twenty other educators from various Catholic institutions in the Philippines were in Bangkok, Thailand last month to attend the Seventh Bishops’ Institute for Social Communication (BISCOM VII).


BISCOM VII’s theme for this session was Social Communication in Catholic Universities of Asia: Facts, Experiences, Challenges. Bangkok’s Assumption University hosted the meeting, which also marks the third time that the city has hosted a BISCOM.


The meeting also has a seven-fold purpose/rationale, which includes looking at how many Catholic universities in Asia offer communication programs and what are its kinds, content, and academic level. BISCOM VII also seeks to analyze the content and offerings of different Asian universities; questions and possibilities such as the role of communication in interreligious dialogue; possible cooperation with Catholic, Christian, and non-Christian universities; and further research into values and ethics.


Apart from Prof. Gonzales and the Philippine delegation, 34 other delegates from ten Asian countries also came to the event which featured eight resource persons. The BISCOM is a program of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conference (FABC) and is part of FABC’s ongoing formation/animation program for the bishops and bishops’ conference personnel. The FABC has offices in Sta. Cruz, Manila. Yael Espera
