Hawaii: Island Paradise Where East Meets West

Conducted in English

In the land of aloha, students will explore the history, the diverse multicultural traditions, and the natural beauty of Hawaii, as described by both native and foreign writers over the past two centuries. The texts are drawn from a broad variety of writers, from Captain Cook, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mark Twain to David Kalakua and Liliuokalani, from Jack London to Jessica Saiki and John Dominis Holt, from Barbara Kingsolver to W. S. Merwin and others. Essays, poems, and stories read in class will come alive as students discover for themselves the natural wonders that have drawn people from all over the world to Hawaii, and as they are exposed to the rich cultural and artistic traditions of this remarkable place through its literature, music, and dance.
