The Papa’ele’ele Blog is a collection of critical and creative essays written by students of the University of Hawai’i – West O’ahu. The purpose of this publication is to provide a framework from which to showcase student work as well as create a forum to foster interdisciplinary discourse in the Humanities and beyond. The Hawaiian word papa’ele’ele translates to “chalkboard“ in English and thus reflects the blog’s purpose of providing a space for students to write and exchange ideas.
Content on Papa’ele’ele is collected and edited by UH West O’ahu instructor Dr. David Odhiambo and by UH Mānoa PhD candidate Carmen Nolte-Odhiambo. You can reach us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
