Torres to lecture on La Solidaridad at DLSU

The Department of History of De La Salle University-Manila invites the public to “Our Little Newspaper: The La Solidaridad and Philippine Journalism in Spain (1889-1895),” a lecture by Victor Torres, PhD, Professorial Chair holder for Rizaliana Studies, on Feb. 28, 2013, 1 to 2:30 pm at Tereso Lara Seminar Room L230, DLSU-Manila.

His abstract reads: “The La Solidaridad has been famous in Philippine history as the newspaper of the Philippine reform movement in Spain. However, not much has been written about its history except for some cursory mention in history books or part of studies about the reformist movement. This paper is an attempt to address that missing part and will try to trace the history of the Soli from its rise as a Filipino newspaper in Spain and its decline in the year before the Philippine Revolution.”
