  1. Life Formed: Evolutionary Design and the Futures of a Political Biology.Aubrey Yee - 2019 - Dissertation, University of Hawai'i at Manoa
    With the advent of CRISPR and gene drive gene editing technologies, synthetic biology is paving the way towards a world where humans have the capacity to rapidly design and re-design lifeforms. With little oversight and agreed upon governance structures, how will we ensure that these technologies are used for the greatest good? As we begin to actively design evolution, how might we decolonize this science? Privileging alternative forms of knowledge production and ethical frameworks from Indigenous peoples and spiritual ecologists in (...)

  2. Pua Kanikawī Kanikawā: The Intimacy of Hawaiian Childbirth.Pua O. Eleili Kelsi Pinto - unknown
    This thesis research analyzes how Hawaiian birthing practices have changed through time by looking through accounts in the Hawaiian Language Repository. It tracks our understanding of birthing practices to stories of Pua Kanikawī and Kanikawā, commonly referenced throughout our tradition as symbolic medicinal flowers created by the deity Haumea to aid in childbirth process. Through the analysis of twelve mo‘olelo from the Hawaiian language newspapers, this research demonstrates how Kanikawī and Kanikawā are tied to phenomenon in the natural environment produced (...)

  3. The Beauty of Advocacy and Advocating for Beauty: The Arguments for Beauty and the Environment in John Muir, Gary Snyder, and Terry Tempest Williams.Eric San George - 2019 - Dissertation, University of Hawai'i at Manoa
    This dissertation contributes to ecocritical scholarship by examining the representation of natural beauty in the environmental imaginations and advocacies of John Muir, Gary Snyder, and Terry Tempest Williams. The emphasis placed on natural beauty in their works suggests beauty’s profound role in activating concern for and creative thinking about the health and future of the planet. Drawing upon the work of Elaine Scarry, this project asserts that beauty engenders a profound defamiliarization and sense of selflessness that contributes to the anti-anthropocentric (...)

  8. Reconsidering the Role of Research Method Guidelines for Qualitative, Mixed-Methods, and Design Science Research.Philipp Holtkamp, Wael Soliman & Mikko Siponen - 2019 - In Proceedings of the 52nd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences. pp. 6280-6289.
    Guidelines for different qualitative research genres have been proposed in information systems. As these guidelines are outlined for conducting and evaluating good research, studies may be denied publication simply because they do not follow a prescribed methodology. This can result in “checkbox” compliance, where the guidelines become more important than the study. We argue that guidelines can only be used to evaluate what good research is if there is evidence that they lead to certain good research outcomes. Currently, the guidelines (...)

  9. Narrowing the Theory’s or Study’s Scope May Increase Practical Relevance.Mikko Siponen & Tuula Klaavuniemi - 2019 - In Proceedings of the 52nd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences. pp. 6260-6269.
    Numerous articles in top IS journals note as a limitation and lack of generalizability that their findings are specific to a certain type of technology, culture, and so on. We argue that this generalizability concern is about limited scope. The IS literature notes this preference for generalizability as a characteristic of good science and it is sometimes confused with statistical generalizability. We argue that such generalizability can be in conflict with explanation or prediction accuracy. An increase in scope can decrease (...)

  14. In Search of a Cure for a Psychosis in Information Systems Design: Co-Created Design and Metaphorical Appreciation.Waguespack Leslie, Babb Jeffry & Yates David - 2018 - In Proceedings of the 51st Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.
    We postulate that a disconnect between stakeholders and designers, often rooted in an understandable preoccupation with technical rationality, limits how design research is conceptualized in the design science research community. We posit co-creation as a way to overcome this limitation that engages reflective design practice fostering a shared understanding of value among the designers/developers, users, analysts and others. Thus, co-creation is an essential ingredient for design satisfaction in many design endeavors. We proffer a theoretical foundation for envisioning design success as (...)

  15. Combating Fake News: An Investigation of Information Verification Behaviors on Social Networking Sites.Torres Russell, Gerhart Natalie & Negahban Arash - 2018 - In Proceedings of the 51st Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.
    The use of the term -˜fake news’ has recently become widespread; however, research on fake news is limited. This research intends to increase understanding of how users of social networking sites determine if they should confirm the validity of news content. Grounded in research on the epistemology of testimony, we develop and test a research model based on perceptions related to news authors, news sharers, and users to test verification behaviors of users. The findings indicate that social tie variety, perceived (...)

  18. Rethinking Pacific Studies Twenty Years On.Wesley-Smith Terence - unknown
    This essay reflects on developments in the field since the 1995 publication of “Rethinking Pacific Islands Studies” first explored a number of intellectual or academic foundations of such programs. It suggests that the pragmatic rationale for Pacific studies, which often has more to do with influence than understanding, and the laboratory rationale, which values Pacific Islanders primarily as objects of study, are both alive and well twenty years on, albeit with more attention among practitioners to issues of positionality, research ethics, (...)

  19. Theories in the Light of Contingency and Change: Possible Future Worlds and Well-Grounded Hope as a Supplement to Truth.Frank Ulrich - unknown
    Based on a critical account of the dominant concept of theory, the paper presents an alterna-tive, wider notion of theory. It is motivated by the need to cope with a contingent research subject and the assumption that IS should provide an orientation for managing the digital transfor-mation. Unlike neo-positivistic notions of theory, the proposed conception is not restricted to de-scriptions of the factual, but may be aimed at de-signing possible future worlds. Conceiving of possible future worlds requires overcoming the barriers (...)

    In peer-to-peer lending, soft information, such as borrowers’ facial features, textual descriptions of loan applications and so on, are regarded as potential signals to screen borrowers. In this study, we examine the signaling effect of a new category of soft information- social media information. Leveraging a unique dataset that combines loan data from a large P2P lending company with social media presence data from a popular social media site, and two natural experiments, we find two forms of social media information (...)

  31. The Secret Life of Methods.Jack C. Richards - unknown
    This paper addresses two questions: How do Methods of language teaching differ from one another? What factors are responsible for the spread of Nethods? I hope to demonstrate that while fundamental differences between methods often relate to different views of the nature of language, or to different instructional theories, the reasons for the rise and fall of Methods are often independent of either of these factors. To understand the role of language theory, instructional theory and implementation factors in Methods, is (...)

    Indian philosopher and activist Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar is the focus of this study. Taking a critical interpretive approach, we attempt not to explain but to understand Sarkar and his work. Chapter one alternatively reads Sarkar's life sympathetically placing him in the mythological hero narrative and critically placing him in the politics of mythification. Chapter two places Sarkar's work within positivist, interpretive and poststructural sites of knowledge. We develop Sarkar's work not as a predictive theory, but as an alternative cultural approach (...)

    In August 2010, conflict between indigenous Rapa Nui people and the Chilean state in ???Easter Island??? escalated as Rapa Nui occupied institutions and lands claimed by the Chilean state. This article introduces competing discourses by which the events of August 2010, as well as subsequent conflicts, might be assessed: archaeological, tourist, Chilean, indigenous, and cosmopolitan ethnography. Ethnographic analysis illuminates the point that the nonindigenous discourses fail to coherently ???place??? the significance of Rapa Nui people in Easter Island and hence cannot (...)
