Hawai'i Scholarship Online is now available

November 17, 2016

We're delighted to announce that the University of Hawai‘i Press has now launched Hawai‘i Scholarship Online, onto the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform, offering access to hundreds of high-quality monographs across Anthropology, History, Religion, and Society and Culture.

Joel Cosseboom, Interim Director and Publisher of University of Hawai'i Press, explains why he is pleased to partner with UPSO >

Today, the University of Hawai‘i Press becomes the 23rd partner to join the family of prestigious publishers now contributing to the UPSO platform, adding over 300 books. Included are essential works from the Korean Classics Library, the highly regarded Southeast Asia: Politics, Meaning, and Memory series, and a set of texts focused on Native Hawaiian knowledge and methodologies jointly published with the University of Hawai‘i’s Hawai‘inuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge. Plus, Hawai‘i Scholarship Online adds a new subdiscipline for Pacific Studies, an area of growing global significance and scholarly potential.

To celebrate the launch of Hawai'i Scholarship Online, we’ve made a selection of chapters from some of the press's key titles freely available, for a limited time.

Exile in Colonial Asia: Kings, Convicts, Commemoration

Salvation through Dissent: Tonghak Heterodoxy and Early Modern Korea
