PIMS 31 Launch: My Land, My Life with Siobhan McDonnell

April 15, 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Center for Korean Studies Add to Calendar

Land, and the kinship it nurtures, is the basis for sustaining livelihoods and ways of life. My Land, My Life explores the land rush that took place in Vanuatu from 2001 to 2014 which resulted in over 10% of all customary land being leased. In this book, Siobhan McDonnell offers new insights into the drivers of capitalist land transformations. Using multi-scalar and multi-sited ethnography she describes not simply a linear march toward commodification of the landscape by foreign interests, but a complex web replete with the local powerful Indigenous men involved in manipulating power and property. The launch and discussion will be on Monday, 15 April 2024 from 2:00 to 4:30 PM HST (Tuesday, 16 April 2024 at 11:00 AM in Port Vila and Tuesday, 16 April 2024 at 10:00 AM in Canberra) in the Center for Korean Studies building (1891 East-West Rd. Honolulu, HI 96822).
