Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: Definitely one of the struggles I had in this class is I am a [U.S.] military wife. I am a military spouse, and it's sometimes hard to go on huakaʻi that are sponsored by people who are against the military because it reflects upon my husband, you know? How can I rely upon the military for support and yet be against them at the same time? Growing up in Hawaiʻi, when I had to bring my husband who is a military person home to my family I was like 'Oh my God, my parents are gonna kill me.' You know, in Hawaiʻi, you always grow up [learning] the military is bad... I learned so much about my classmates just personally because this class shares a lot of moʻolelo from where they personally come from. So when you're sharing about a place you come from you kind of get that bond with each other. You bond with someone when you're fighting against wind farms. I learned education can be fun. It was definitely fun in my last semester to have this class... Just to learn so much about a place you come from. I had British Literature. I had Shakespeare. I had 19th Century Literature that dealt with colonialism... When you read Shakespeare, it's not really personally connected to you... [A place-based class like Candace's] just bonds you closer to the place you come from, and it's so much easier to learn when you understand what's being presented in the class.
Description: This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in Upper Divison English at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Were your relationships with classmates, the campus, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, or the Pacific changed in any way? Do you see your major or your educational experience any differently as a result of it?'
