Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I've been a student at Mānoa for the last twenty years: my BA and MA were in education, and I added an MA in Pacific Island Studies, in preparation for a PhD in History... So I've gotten on the Faculty Senate, and I'm on a committee on Academic Policy and Planning, I want to add a Pacific voice not only for the Samoan students but also for the Pacific, Hawaiʻi, local Asians. In fact, the whole Hawaiʻi population needs that sense of place... for learning purposes, they need that sense of place, they need that context, where they're coming from... I was trying to make [world history] relevant [for a Chinese-background student] by asking 'what do you think was going on in China while this was happening in Europe?'... Pacific literature would not be here without looking at World History, because Pacific literature is a response to Euro-American literature and their representations of the Pacific islands... So when you talk about place, whose place do we bring in? And I think for whatever course you are teaching... an interdisciplinary approach is more sensible.
