Brown Bag Biography with Mari Matsuda

February 23, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Zoom

The Center for Biographical Research presents: / “Radical Wāhine of Honolulu, 1945” / Mari Matsuda, Professor of Law, Retired, and MFA Candidate, Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa / This talk is presented in conjunction with Mari Matsuda's art exhibit at Aupuni Space: Radical Wāhine of Honolulu, 1945. The exhibit honors women who were members of various left formations on the UH campus and in the broader Honolulu community, who were red-baited and persecuted for their efforts to bring about true democracy. Matsuda presents a prosographic approach, asking why a cohort of radical women thinkers emerged in Honolulu in 1945. In what ways were these women, who seem singularly astonishing in the depth of their radical thought, perfectly predictable given world events and the realities of their lived experience? / Mari Matsuda is an artist and one of the foundational writers of critical race theory and intersectional feminism./Cosponsored by Hamilton Library, the Hawaiʻinuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, Hui ʻĀina Pilipili: Native Hawaiian Initiative, the Spark M.
