Logan holds a Masters in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School and is a Ph. D. candidate in the American Studies department at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. His current research considers the relationships that have historically existed and might be obtained between settlers and Hawaiians in Hawaiʻi. In his Brown Bag Biography, Logan will walk through his ongoing dissertation project — a consideration of what he is calling an ethical tradition of settler decolonization in Hawaiʻi. Collecting and analyzing interviews of non-Hawaiians who have been at the forefront of various causes from the 1970s to the present, this project focuses on the stories and experiences of over 10 interviewees who help answer the question: what should be the role of non-Hawaiians in Hawaiian movements?
