About the event
Ms. J. Uluwehi Hopkins, the recipient of 2021-2022 AAUW’s American Fellowship, is currently pursuing her PhD in Hawaiian history at UH Mānoa’s Department of History. AAUW American Fellowships support women scholars who are pursuing full-time study to complete dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research full time, or preparing research for publication for eight consecutive weeks (https://www.aauw.org/resources/programs/fellowships-grants/current-opportunities/american/).
Ms. J. Uluwehi Hopkins’ studies focuses on the lands and waters of the UH Mānoa area and the role of prominent Kanaka Maoli women like Emma Metcalf Beckley Nakuina who served as water commissioner during the kingdom era and the first several years of the Territory of Hawaiʻi (https://www.hawaii.edu/news/2021/10/06/hawaiian-scholar-uluwehi-hopkins/).
Her work definitely relates to the AAUW‘s mission of empowering women in university settings and beyond.
