Kelli Lyman Selected for the Hawaiʻi Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program

Congratulations to UHM History student Kelli Lyman, who has been chosen for the 2015-16 Cohort of the Hawaiʻi Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program! From the Center for Strategic & International Studies website:

The Hawaiʻi Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program, building on the six-year success of its predecessor the Hawaiʻi Emerging Leaders Program, provides undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals with the opportunity to learn about Asia-Pacific international affairs from leading senior and emerging policy experts affiliated with Pacific Forum CSIS. This interactive program will help the next generation of Hawaii’s business, government, and community leaders develop a solid knowledge base of the major political, economic, and security issues in the Asia Pacific and to think critically and strategically about Hawaii’s role in the region.

A Festschrift for Jerry Bentley—Now Available Online

The Journal of World History, Vol. 25, Issue 4, a special festschrift for the late Prof. Jerry Bentley, is now available online and features the work of our former graduate students. From the introduction by Prof. Matthew Romaniello:

Hardly any student had graduated in the past twenty-five years whom Jerry had not advised in some capacity. I began the issue by approaching the most recent graduates of our program with whom the department still had contact, and everyone readily agreed to contribute an article out of their deep respect for Jerry and his role in their development as historians.
