and global or post-colonial feminism (Mohanty and Desai). We have considered how gender is constructed, how it is constructed intersectionally, and how knowledge is
produced and shaped by bias or privileged positions.
consider how knowledge about Hawai’i is shaped by race, class, gender/sexuality, and/or the colonial experience. Drawing from the readings, select three concepts from
three different readings and define them clearly and fully such as “doing gender,” “western eyes,” or “black feminist thought.” These are JUST examples, please
identify and describe the concepts that you find in the readings that will help you explain your position on how knowledge of Hawai’i is constructed by gender and
other intersections. In order to support your take or analysis of the portrayal of Hawai’i and how it is informed by race, class, gender, etc. present some form of
data or empirical evidence. For example, this could include statistics, visual representations, video on Hawai’i, academic resources, and/or websites.
