This section comprises material, published in journals, that did not undergo peer review. Click here to return to the Articles landing page. FWIW, here’s a comprehensive Chronologically Arranged Listing of Publications.
Journal titles are followed by their ISSN(s), then by their inclusion in either or both the Clarivate Analytics Web of Science and the Scopus databases (abbreviated as WoS and Sc respectively), and/or their defunct status, via superscripted indicators. Note: Articles “transcribed” and made available in PDF format on this web page are corrected and/or slightly expanded versions of the print versions. As such, they may not entirely correspond with the exact wording in the journal’s published form.
In citing passages from the versions I have uploaded here, it would be advisable to refer to both the journal publication as well as the blog version. Sample citation, for the first page of the first listed entry on this page: David 124. Sample reference for the same entry:

“Seeds in the Garden of Letters: A Review of The End of National Cinema by Patrick F. Campos.” Humanities Diliman: A Philippine Journal of Humanities 14.2 (July-December 2017): 153-57. From my Facebook announcement of October 26, 2017: “Essential personal disclosures, aside from the ones in the review: Campos and I were technically non-colleagues at the University of the Philippines Film Institute, since he joined the faculty after I left. Also, as editor of HD, his only participation in this article was in acceding to my suggestion that I review his book; all the editing, proofreading, and peer-reviewing coordination tasks were conducted entirely by HD staff members. In fact I was the one who caught a minor inaccuracy in my first draft – when as book author, he could have been the one to point it out to me. (Which means, whether he read the submission or not, he maintained a hands-off approach.)”
