Anthropologist Carol MacLennan from Michigan Tech’s Department of Social Sciences will offer remarks and a slide presentation on her recently published work, Sovereign Sugar: Industry and Environment in Hawai’i. The book unravels the tangled relationship between the sugar industry and Hawai’i’s cultural
and natural landscapes. It is the first work to fully examine the complex tapestry of socioeconomic, political, and environmental forces that shaped sugar’s role in Hawai’i.
