REGISTRATION: The symposium is open to the public at no cost but registration is required due to limited seating. To register please email the "Symposium Committee" at hslp@hawaii.edu with your full name and your profession, and be sure to type "HSLP 2009 Symposium Registration" in the subject space of your email. The committee will acknowledge receipt of your registration by email. Seats are limited so seating will be reserved for confirmed registered participants.

TOPIC: The title of the symposium references two things. First HSLP would like to pay tribute to the late Dr. Kanalu Young (1954-2008) for his contributions to HSLP as its faculty advisor and his continued dedication to HSLP. Second, it acknowledges another "wave" of scholarship and the graduation of three HSLP members with their Ph.Ds. Dr. Kamana Beamer (Geography), Dr. Sydney Iaukea (Political Science) and Dr. Keanu Sai (Political Science) will be the featured presenters. The symposium will conclude in a panel discussion on each individual’s progress on publication of their respective books, Kamehameha Publishing's involvement with publishing HSLP's journal, and other topics related to HSLP and curriculum development. As HSLP’s new faculty advisor Dr. Niklaus Schweizer reminds us, our symposium will honour the saying of Kamehameha III: “He aupuni palapala ko'u - 'o ke kanaka pono - 'o ia ko'u kanaka --- Mine is the kingdom of education - the righteous man - is my man.”
