The Philippine Studies Group (PSG) of the Association for Asian Studies is pleased to announce that the recipient of the Grant Goodman Prize in Philippine Historical Studies in 2013 is James Francis Warren. The committee is unanimous in recognizing the significance of Dr. Warren’s books and writings, especially The Sulu Zone (1981) and Iranun and Balangingi (2002), as groundbreaking, dealing with neglected areas in Philippine historiography (southern Philippines, maritime studies, precolonial /early colonial economy), pioneering themes such as ethnogenesis and identity formation in the early Philippines and expanding Philippine studies through trans national, Southeast Asian/world system approaches and perspectives.
