The theme of this year’s symposium seeks to engage with emerging trends within the field of Transpacific Studies, focusing particularly on the theoretical interventions of the “archipelagic” as it spans critical perspectives across Asia and the Pacific. We are especially interested in centering various kinds of mobilities, transits, and connections that bring together seemingly unrelated sites and histories within an archipelagic framework. How does an archipelagic perspective help to unsettle and reconstitute the field of Transpacific Studies? What has been heretofore foreclosed by a failure to engage with this framework? Given the centrality of Indigenous and Native Pacific epistemologies in the consolidation of archipelagic critique, what decolonial possibilities become possible as Transpacific Studies embraces an archipelagic paradigm? 

Our invited scholars include:

  • Keith L. Camacho

  • Evyn Lê Espiritu Gandhi

  • Jodi Kim

  • Candace Fujikane

We invite you to join us for a 90-minute moderated roundtable open to the public with our guest scholars on the theme of "archipelagic/s." After initial questions from the Transpacific Research Cluster, we will invite graduate student participants and other audience members to engage in conversation with our panelists.
