Pasefikans,
come and attend the event (13May, from 12noon...)


Please join us for:

"Beaches, Reefs, and Currents: Contemporary Keywords for (Re)Searching Oceania," by Greg Dvorak, Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo and the Australian National University

Date: 13 May 2008, Tuesday
Time: 12:00-1:30 pm
Place: UHM Center for Korean Studies Auditorium

>
> In this public talk, Greg Dvorak contemplates research, teaching, and the future of Pacific Studies by reflecting upon some of the core elements of what it means to learn Oceania, and how to refresh our idea of research itself within this part of the world. In memory of the late Greg Dening's metaphor of the beach, he proposes a series of keywords that can help forge new pathways to navigate Pacific scholarship and "do" Pacific Studies in these turbulent waters of the 21st century. Drawing from his own research at Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands and sharing moving images and sounds collected during my multi-sited study, he will meditate on his model of coral as a model for the hybridity and sedimentation of knowledge, history, genealogy, community, and place, and show how this model relates to a more expansive way of studying and teaching about the Pacific. He also hopes to expand beyond American notions of Oceania in order to address the fluidity of this vast ocean and draw attention to how the Pacific Islands are deeply articulated not only with America and Europe but also Japan, China, and other so-called "non-Western" entities. In particular, he intends to contemplate the crucial role the Center for Pacific Islands Studies plays in Northern Oceania in relation to other parts of the Pacific Islands, and the rest of the "Rim."

> Bio
> Greg Dvorak was born in the United States but spent his early years on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands, where his father worked in the missile testing program. After high school, he went to Japan, where he became fluent in Japanese. He completed his BA in 1996 at Rutgers University in East Asian Studies and then returned to Japan, where he worked for the next four years. On a fellowship from the East-West Center, he went on to complete his master's degree in Pacific Islands studies at the University of Hawai'i in 2004. His thesis, "Remapping Home, Touring the Betweenness of Kwajalein" focused on the ambivalent experiences of his childhood between America and the Marshall Islands.
>
> He went on to the Australian National University (ANU), where he completed his PhD in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies and the Centre for Cross Cultural Research. His doctoral study also concentrated on Kwajalein in historical perspective, with consideration of the multiple layers of Marshallese, Japanese, and American memories that had sedimented there during the 20th century.
>
> Currently, Greg is a visiting research fellow at both the University of Tokyo and the Australian National University and is conducting research about entangled Micronesian and Japanese histories.
