Brief excerpt from interview: Normally when I teach Writing Intensive they're all Hawaiʻi literature based, so they're all place-based. In 320 [which is not a Writing Intensive or place-based course], [the students] get involved with the literature. They're all English majors. They love literature. They engage in the topics... But it's not necessarily on a personal kind of level. It's on a very intellectual kind of level, and I think that what's nice about these kinds of place-based projects is that they're both intellectual and they're kind of spiritual in some kind of way. Or there's a personal connection for them that enables them to ask questions and to answer questions that they've had for a long time about where they live.
