The theme for this year's annual meeting and conference is:
The Asia-Pacific Rim, Hawaii,
and The Meeting Points of History
For centuries, the Hawaiian Islands have been a meeting point and an historical crossroads.
In his sermon, Japanese Embassy in Washington, preached on March 18, 1860 in the Seaman's Bethel in Honolulu, Rev. Samuel C. Damon observed:
We are now living amid scenes, changes, revolutions and convulsions of nations, most striking and grand. Old landmarks and customs are breaking up and dissolving, and new combinations are forming, all betokening that the end draweth nigh.
The purpose of this year's annual meeting and conference is to examine the relations between the study of history and education, focusing on the Asia-Pacific Region.
Proposals are welcomed that center on a variety of topics and interests with emphasis on historical events and circumstances throughout Hawaii and the Asia-Pacific Rim. How can we learn from our interconnected histories to solve contemporary and future challenges?
We also welcome presentation proposals on other areas of historical and educational interests.
