Aloha America: Hula Circuits as Alternative Archives and Repertoires

February 26, 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Manoa Campus, Saunders 325 Add to Calendar

The Department of Sociology, the American Studies Department, the Center for Pacific Island Studies, the Department of Anthropology, and the Department of Women's Studies present: "Aloha America: Hula Circuits as Alternative Archives and Repertoires" by Professor Adria L. Imada.

Professor Imada is Associate Professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego. Her 2012 book Aloha America: Hula Circuits through the U.S. Empire was published by Duke University Press.

Her talk explores the unexpected relationship of tourist hula performers to Hawai‘i’s present-day, self-determination movement. Politically engaged readings of colonial and neocolonial performances suggest hula is being reconstituted as a contemporary form of redress. See attached poster for details.
