Hawaiian Historical Society hosts UHP author John R. K. Clark

Author John R. K. Clark turns to the Hawaiian newspaper archives to create rich reference guides filled with primary resource accounts of places in Hawai’i — his latest title, North Shore Place Names, comes from a lifelong passion for surfing and fascination with Hawai’i’s home of legendary winter swells. This title is an important example of one of many transitions in research style for scholars of Hawai’i — please take a look at his Hawaiian Historical Society lecture by clicking on the image to the left.

His latest title, North Shore Place Names, can be found on our web store.

Transpacific Studies: Framing an Emerging Field

Intersections: Asian and Pacific American Transcultural Studies

 

Recognizing the increasing importance of the transpacific as a word and concept, this anthology proposes a framework for transpacific studies that examines the flows of culture, capital, ideas, and labor across the Pacific. These flows involve Asia, the Americas, and the Pacific Islands. Transpacific studies sheds light on the cultural and political movements, artistic works, and ideas that have arisen to contest state, corporate, and military ambitions. In sum, the transpacific as a concept illuminates how flows across the Pacific can be harnessed for purposes of both domination and resistance.

 

Susan Scott Signs Call Me Captain before Another Sailing Adventure

NEW RELEASE and AUTHOR EVENT


Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Ocean Watch” columnist Susan Scott will appear at BookEnds in Kailua on Saturday, September 27, noon to 1:00 p.m., to sign her newest book, Call Me Captain: A Memoir of a Woman at Sea. This will be a good time to catch her before she leaves a few days later on a sail from New Caledonia to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, then on to Palau to lead a snorkeling and natural history tour for the Oceanic Society. She’ll return to Hawai‘i in mid-November for the holidays and new year, with a West Coast book tour to follow in February.

Quite different from Susan’s previous guidebooks on Hawai‘i’s marine life, Call Me Captain is a tale of self-discovery when she faces a turning point in her life and marriage and decides to leave everything behind to sail to Palmyra Atoll to work as a volunteer biologist. Follow Susan as she writes about swimming with manta rays, kayaking with sharks, and sailing with whales and dolphins. Her memoir is a romance, a harrowing sea tale, and a personal account of nature’s power to put life in perspective.
