Memories, Continuities and Constructions. Social process in Hawai’i Volume 42. Department of Sociology, University of Hawai’i at Manoa
Joyce N. Chinen, Guest editor
This volume on Uchinaanchu Diaspora: Memories, Continuities, Constructions in Social Process in Hawai’i presents updated voices and analyses on the Okinawan experiences in and around Hawai’i. Exchanges and ties with Okinawa and within the Pacific Basin are linked in significant ways to the experience in Hawai’i. The Guest Editor, Professor Joyce Chinen, and the contributors explore how large structural forces dominating Okinawa, Hawai’i and other local settings also foster agency, transforming these influences over time. Comparing the Hawai’i experience with survival and adaptations in Okinawa and other settings provide guides for further research and development.
