Hawaii: The Colonization of Paradise

Dates: 04/06/2017 (Thu): 7:00 pm- 9:00 pm
Category: Global Initiative

What do you really know about Hawaii?

On Thursday we have a speaker who knows a lot about this Pacific island paradise. Born in Bryn Mawr, Pa., Susanna Moore grew up in Hawaii, to later become a prize-winning author, as well as a college writing instructor since the 1980s, teaching at Princeton University and elsewhere.

She has repeatedly revisited Hawaii in her writing, in both novels and memoirs. Several of  Moore’s novels have been made into films, most notably In the Cut (2003). Professor Moore will provide a personal perspective on the past history and current state of Hawaii, a once-independent island nation colonized by the US in the 1800s, at tremendous cost to native people & culture.

Her lecture will be held on Thursday, April 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Gerry Form of the Rowley Center on the Middletown campus. This event is free and open to the public.

Location: Rowley Center (Science and Engineering Building) Room 010
