Talk Story Sessions

One of the pillars of life in Hawai'i is 'talking story,' when you gather with a group of people and pass time by chatting about a host of different topics and exchanging stories. HSA is creating a semesterly talk story space for sociologists on- and off-island to gather, swap tales, and get to know each other. Please see information on the planned events below, and join us!

A Teaching Talk Story

September 16, 2022
Noon - 1pm HST


With recent policy changes by local education administrators, many of us find ourselves transitioning from the virtual classroom to the in-person space. To help with this change back to "normal," Hawai'i Sociological Association will be holding A Teaching Talk Story, where we will gather to share and learn practical pedagogical tools.


Our speakers and topics include:

  • Student Reading Hacks,
    by Dr. Colleen Rost-Banik (UH system)

  • Exit Passes and Anonymous Feedback,
    by Dr. Hannah Liebreich (Coastal Carolina University)

  • Teaching Race and Racism in Everyday Language,
    by Omar Bird, ABD (UH Manoa)

  • Anonymous, Patterned Icebreakers,
    by Dr. Xóchitl Mota-Back (UH West Oahu)

Want to join? Please RSVP to 

We look forward to seeing you!
