Brown Bag
'Ulu'ulu in the Library
September 24, 2015, 12:00 pm
'Ulu'ulu in the Library
The new Brown Bag series, designed for faculty, lecturers, and specialists across disciplines to share their research with the UHWO community, features three events this Fall. All events are sponsored by the Center for Professional Development and will be held in the ʻUluʻulu space in the library. Thursday, September 24, 12:00-1:20 Suzanne Finney (Lecturer of Anthropology), Mary Mostafanezhad (Asst. Professor of Geography at UH Mānoa), Guido Carlo Pigliasco (Lecturer of Anthropology at UH Mānoa), Forrest Wade Young (Lecturer of Anthropology and Pacific Island Studies at UH Mānoa) "At Home and in the Field: Ethnographic Encounters in Asia and the Pacific Islands" This is an introduction to a recently published book that is designed to supplement introductory classes across multiple disciplines (anthropology, geography, sociology, Pacific Island studies among others) with contemporary and regionally relevant examples of ethnographic field research. The editors collected contributions from scholars who live and work in Hawai'i, Asia and the Pacific Islands. A primary goal of the book is to effectively reach UH students by offering examples of research conducted within the diverse cultural heritage of the local population and written by a diverse group of scholars from around the region, making it very accessible to students at UHWO. Dr. Patricia Yu (Instructor of Economics) "Measuring the Effects of Sex Offenders' Residential Locations on Property Values" Are homeowners and home buyers aware of the sex offenders' residential locations, which have been made publicly available since 1996? This study examines the impact of sex offenders' residential locations on property values in Rochester, NY by using 19,702 single residential housing sales data from 2000 to 2013. Semi-parametric and fixed effects models are used to control the spatial heterogeneity and fixed neighborhood effects, respectively. Friday, October 16, 12:00-1:20 Dr. Natalie Szymanski (Asst. Professor of English and Writing Program Administrator) "A GenAdmin Story of Becoming: An Ecological Approach to Sustainable Writing Program Administration" Combining postmodern mapping, Writing Program Administration (WPA) scholarship, and ecological theory work this presentation will provide a frame for understanding everyday WPA work as a sustainability-conscious constellation of interrelated and interdependent ecologies. As a contextualized example of this frame's applicability, I will use my experiences as a GenAdmin WPA at UH-West O'ahu and map my program's goals, stakeholders, initiatives, politics, resources, professional development, documents, etc. as looped, interdependent, delicately balanced ecologies (per Bateson). This example will provide audience members with a dynamic, sustainability-conscious frame which has the potential to help them better understand and successfully navigating the interdependent complexity of their own institutional positions. Sara Aiello (Public Services Librarian), Pearl DeSure (Public Services Librarian), and Alphie Garcia (Information Resources and Collection Management Librarian) "Library Website Redesign" The University of Hawai'i - West O'ahu Library began a redesign of its website in the beginning of summer 2014 to improve their users experience and to better present their information. Learn how the library staff went about developing their site using feedback from students and faculty, incorporating recent design techniques, and tying themes together with their discovery layer. Thursday, November 19, 11:00-12:20 Dr. David Kupferman (Asst. Professor of Education) "The Matrix Ate My Homework: Accelerationist Aesthetics in an Age of Neoliberal Education" The purpose of this paper is to present an alternate response to neoliberal education reforms, in the form of accelerationism, that does not rely on a return to a primitivist localism or direct action (such as that of the Occupy movement). Briefly stated, accelerationism does not try to reform neoliberal tendencies by going around them or from "within"; rather, it argues for accelerating market forces so that we can go through the free-market system, and thereby arrive at a post-capitalist future. Employing an accelerationist aesthetics of speculative science fiction, this perspective allows us to see not just the tactics of neoliberalism, but to recover, repurpose, and speculate on the ends of a future democratic education and its pedagogies and technologies.

Thursday, September 24, 12:00-1:20 Suzanne Finney (Lecturer of Anthropology), Mary Mostafanezhad (Asst. Professor of Geography at UH Mānoa), Guido Carlo Pigliasco (Lecturer of Anthropology at UH Mānoa), Forrest Wade Young (Lecturer of Anthropology and Pacific Island Studies at UH Mānoa) "At Home and in the Field: Ethnographic Encounters in Asia and the Pacific Islands" This is an introduction to a recently published book that is designed to supplement introductory classes across multiple disciplines (anthropology, geography, sociology, Pacific Island studies among others) with contemporary and regionally relevant examples of ethnographic field research. The editors collected contributions from scholars who live and work in Hawai'i, Asia and the Pacific Islands. A primary goal of the book is to effectively reach UH students by offering examples of research conducted within the diverse cultural heritage of the local population and written by a diverse group of scholars from around the region, making it very accessible to students at UHWO. Dr. Patricia Yu (Instructor of Economics) "Measuring the Effects of Sex Offenders' Residential Locations on Property Values" Are homeowners and home buyers aware of the sex offenders' residential locations, which have been made publicly available since 1996? This study examines the impact of sex offenders' residential locations on property values in Rochester, NY by using 19,702 single residential housing sales data from 2000 to 2013. Semi-parametric and fixed effects models are used to control the spatial heterogeneity and fixed neighborhood effects, respectively. Friday, October 16, 12:00-1:20 Dr. Natalie Szymanski (Asst. Professor of English and Writing Program Administrator) "A GenAdmin Story of Becoming: An Ecological Approach to Sustainable Writing Program Administration" Combining postmodern mapping, Writing Program Administration (WPA) scholarship, and ecological theory work this presentation will provide a frame for understanding everyday WPA work as a sustainability-conscious constellation of interrelated and interdependent ecologies. As a contextualized example of this frame's applicability, I will use my experiences as a GenAdmin WPA at UH-West O'ahu and map my program's goals, stakeholders, initiatives, politics, resources, professional development, documents, etc. as looped, interdependent, delicately balanced ecologies (per Bateson). This example will provide audience members with a dynamic, sustainability-conscious frame which has the potential to help them better understand and successfully navigating the interdependent complexity of their own institutional positions. Sara Aiello (Public Services Librarian), Pearl DeSure (Public Services Librarian), and Alphie Garcia (Information Resources and Collection Management Librarian) "Library Website Redesign" The University of Hawai'i - West O'ahu Library began a redesign of its website in the beginning of summer 2014 to improve their users experience and to better present their information. Learn how the library staff went about developing their site using feedback from students and faculty, incorporating recent design techniques, and tying themes together with their discovery layer. Thursday, November 19, 11:00-12:20 Dr. David Kupferman (Asst. Professor of Education) "The Matrix Ate My Homework: Accelerationist Aesthetics in an Age of Neoliberal Education" The purpose of this paper is to present an alternate response to neoliberal education reforms, in the form of accelerationism, that does not rely on a return to a primitivist localism or direct action (such as that of the Occupy movement). Briefly stated, accelerationism does not try to reform neoliberal tendencies by going around them or from "within"; rather, it argues for accelerating market forces so that we can go through the free-market system, and thereby arrive at a post-capitalist future. Employing an accelerationist aesthetics of speculative science fiction, this perspective allows us to see not just the tactics of neoliberalism, but to recover, repurpose, and speculate on the ends of a future democratic education and its pedagogies and technologies.
