The Detours project explores the fantasy of Hawai’i as an exotic destination for consumption
by tourists, perverting the genre of the guidebook to produce alternative narratives, tours, mappings and images
of the islands, and concrete examples of moving from metaphors of decolonization to material practices and
everyday acts of resistance.
Come and join us for a presentation that describes the project and the political and intellectual foundations upon which it is based, and hear some chapter vignettes by UH Mānoa scholars across disciplines.
Please register as space is limited.
