In the 1960s, Hawai‘i was popularly imagined as a “paradise”—its tropical climate, natural landscape, and racial diversity made it at once a premier destination for American tourists and a conduit of U.S. Cold War objectives in Asia.  In this talk, Simeon Man explores a lesser-known fact: the islands during this time also served as a pivotal training ground for the Vietnam War.  By examining these two formations of knowledge simultaneously, his talk will illuminate ho​w racial liberalism emerged as an imperative of U.S. counterinsurgency, a contradiction that would animate Hawai‘i’s ​protracted anti-imperialist movement by the end of the 1960s.
