Discussion and Performance: Hawaii and New England Missionaries

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Two hundred years ago, New England-based missionaries, many with ties to Andover, made the inaugural voyage to the Kingdom of Hawaii. The rest, the saying goes, is history. But, whose history is it? From whose perspective has it been told and to what ends? What if the intertwined histories of Hawaii and New England were even more complex, intriguing, and far-reaching than we have previously imagined? On Thursday, October 3rd from 7 to 9 p.m. in Kemper Auditorium, a scholarly discussion and cultural program will explore new texts, current research, and a performance by writer/actor/storyteller Moses Goods. Following the event, one of the panelists, Noelani Arista, associate professor of history, University of Hawaii, Manoa, will be signing and selling her book, The Kingdom and the Republic: Sovereign Hawaii and the Early United States (2019). We encourage participants to register for the October 3rd event via this link: http://bit.ly/2knF4aq.
