The University of Hawaiâ€™i at MÄnoaâ€™s School of Pacific and Asian Studies (SPAS) will host the 25th annual graduate student conference in Spring of 2014. The event hopes to feature and promote the graduate-level research of students hailing from a wide range of backgrounds including Hawaiâ€™i, the US Mainland, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. The conference will provide the UH MÄnoa student community, faculty, and staff with exposure to a diversity of contemporary themes and research topics in Asian and Pacific Island Studies. In addition to research presentations, the conference will feature performances by various Asian and Pacific dance and music groups and will host a keynote speaker whose research addresses the conferenceâ€™s interdisciplinary theme. The event will also provide the opportunity for students to network with peers from all over Asia and the Pacific.
Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. Nancy Lee Peluso, from University of California, Berkeley. Her speech is entitled, "The Plantation and the Mine: Political Ecologies of Order and Chaos."
