Excavating the Life of Juliette May Fraser (1887-1983), Artist in Hawai'i

September 16, 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki Hall A201

Sharon Weiner, PhD candidate in the Department of English at UH Mānoa, will talk about her scholarship on Juliette May Fraser (1887-1983), an artist who lived in Hawaiʻi.

Fraser was recognized in her day, but has been until now overlooked as the subject of a serious biography.

Sharon Weiner is writing that biography, and her talk will not only introduce and discuss Fraser’s life, but also ask philosophical, ethical and theoretical questions about writing a biography. How do we work with historical records and memories? Do we reconcile different points of view about the subject.

The talk is free and open to the public.
