8th Annual CPIS Student Conference: "E Ala Mai: Awakening a New Oceanic Consciousness"
More than 25 years ago Epeli Hau’ofa reminded us of our Oceanic connectedness as a sea of islands. Our islands have since been on the move and so too have our connections to them and to each other. New relationships are forged, recovered, and/or reshaped to meet the challenges that ripple throughout Oceania today. From the occupation of West Papua, construction on Mauna a Wākea, to rising sea levels, we are witnessing new constellations of co-resistance, which, in their formation, open us to futures we have not yet imagined.

This year the Center for Pacific Islands Studies (CPIS) is working to showcase this at our 2020 annual conference, “E ala mai: Awakening a New Oceanic Consciousness.” CPIS invites all artists, scholars, performers, community activists and members to share space and story about relationships formed across the arts, academia, and sites of activism throughout Oceania. We invite all who hope to witness and contribute to a new Oceanic consciousness. E ala mai!

Join us Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March14th for this yearʻs Center for Pacific Islands Student Conference!
