The workshop is a collaboration between the East-West Center (Asian Studies Development Program), the National Park Service, and the Pacific Historic Parks. The program offers a mix of lectures and discussion, opportunities for individual research, and visits to Pacific War sites in the greater Honolulu area, particularly Pearl Harbor. Presentations by scholars known for their work on the history and memory of the Pacific War will focus on a range of key places and events that continue to be points of interest and controversy in interpreting the significance of the Pacific War. Classroom sessions will be complemented with site visits and opportunities to explore available resources in the library and archive collections of the University of Hawai‘i and the newly designated Valor in the Pacific World War II National Monument.

Both full-time and adjunct faculty teaching in community colleges may apply. Participants will receive a $1200 cash stipend to help cover travel expenses, books, food and lodging.
