  The Sociology of Hawaiian Ghost Stores  
(Academic)

Leighton Vila, Ph.D. Student in the Department of Sociology will be presenting The Sociology of Hawaiian Ghost Stories.

In Hawaiian culture, ghost stories are commonly used to create ethnic solidarity and to bring communities together. Hawaiians have great respect for the land, and spirits that reside within it. This talk will focus on the cultural-social effects of ghosts. Mr. Vila will be reading actual ghost stories, as documented by the University of Hawaii Folklore Project and other academic texts, and explaining the historical, cultural, and sociological ways that these stories affect Hawaiian culture.
