SpamTalk

 

Please join us Friday, April 11th in the Tokioka Room (Moore Hall 319) at 3:00pm for a talk by UHM Women’s Studies Associate Professor Mire Koikari. Professor Koikari will relate the significance of luncheon meat (aka SPAM) in Okinawa and its role as a narrative nexus for Okinawan expression on a variety of topics relating to war, identity, and, of course, food. See FLYER for details.

This talk is co-sponsored by the 2014 Waikiki SPAM® Jam as well as the UHM Department of Women’s Studies and Center for Okinawan Studies. Light refreshments will be provided.
