Philosophy Conference: "Colony and Resistance"

Location: CC 301 and CC 306

The Philosophy Department will be hosting the Pacific Association for the Continental Tradition (PACT) on September 15-19, 2016. PACT is a philosophical organization committed to bringing a range of philosophical traditions to bear on the unique sense of place offered by the Western United States. Look for our forthcoming open-access journal, which will publish essays in indigenous philosophy, environmental philosophy, and other meditations on the ambiguous places we find ourselves. This year’s conference theme is "Colony and Resistance."

Some highlights of the conference include: (1) two student panels from the Sociology Department and the Philosophy Department, (2) an interdisciplinary panel comprised of UH Hilo faculty on Sustainability, Resistance and Education featuring guest panel participant, Manulani Meyer, and (3) special dance and musical performances from Jon Osorio and Peter Steeves. The conference will take place in CC 301 or CC 306. The dance and musical event will be held in Campus Center Plaza on Thursday, September 15 from 5-7pm.

For more information about this event, please contact Dr. Chris Lauer (lauer3@hawaii.edu).
