While Globalization and Neo-liberalism change the discourse(s) of ideas, commodities, policies and technologies; Multilingualism and Nationalism still persist as the fundamental drive to further develop a de facto National Language in the Philippines. This panel explores the current issues, problems, and discourses related to Filipino, the National Language of the Philippines. Papers concerning Language Planning and Policy, Translation, Contact Linguistics, Language and Politics, and Pedagogy seek to answer the following: How are the new modalities of Language use contribute to theorizing the concept, functions, and perception of a/the National Language? How are the problems and issues concerning Filipino be solved? What new theories, ideologies, approaches, and methodologies can be considered in managing the Representation and Revitalization of Filipino in the Philippines?
