<strong><em>Hawaii's "Ceded Lands": The Ongoing Quest for Justice in Hawaii</em></strong>
<em>Speaker</em>: Professor Williamson B.C. Chang
<em>Description</em>: While Hawaiians may disagree about many issues, they do agree and unite around their responsibility and kuleana for the aina. The loss of the "ceded lands", as a result of United States intervention is a source of continued discontent. Similarly, the loss of Alii lands by the leasehold conversion act, held constitutional by the United States Supreme Court in 1984, remains a major grievance. Professor Chang will speak about the nature of Hawaiian claims to both the "ceded lands" and Alii lands.

<div class="descr">The History Workshop's fall series on "Capitalism in Crisis: Development, Sustainability, & Inequality in Global Perspective" will start with Professor James P. Kraft (UHM, History) speaking about his recent book, "Vegas at Odds: Labor Conflict in a Leisure Economy, 1960-1985."
His study explores the dynamics of the workforce -- the casino and hotel workers and their relations with the companies they work and occasionally strike against.
Along the way, the book traces the rise and changing fortunes of organized and unorganized labor as Las Vegas evolved from a small, somewhat seedy desert oasis into the glitzy tourist destination that it is today.</div>

<div class="descr">Emel Mathlouthi is a songwriter, composer, guitarist, and singer who is bringing a powerful brand new sound to Tunisian music. Endowed with an outstanding voice, she evokes Joan Baez, Sister Marie Keyrouz and the Lebanese diva Fairouz. Her captivating style is lyrical, with powerful rock, oriental and trip hop influences (she's collaborated with Adrian Thaws AKA Tricky).
Emel began her artistic career at the age of 8 on stage at the small amphitheater in the Ibn Sina suburb of Tunis where she lived until the age of 25, when she moved to France to pursue her career as a singer. Her song "Kelmti Horra", (my word is free) was taken up by the Arab Spring revolutionaries and sung on the streets of Tunis. She has immense stage presence and a voice that spells revolution and freedom.
