Article
Full-text available
A resurgence of agrarianism has motivated new farmers to enter farming, not for profit, but for lifestyle and socio‐ecological values which are frequently associated with diverse economies. Proponents of diverse economies argue for an ontological reframing that accounts for non‐capitalist forms of economic exchange. However, these perspectives have...
Article
Full-text available
Following the decline of plantation agriculture in Hawai'i, widespread agro-food initiatives espousing narratives of food localization and sustainability have proliferated across the islands. These initiatives reflect divergent value regimes that emerge from vicissitudes of commodity and social relations in post-plantation Hawai'i. These emergent v...
Book
Full-text available
In Food and Power in Hawai‘i, island scholars and writers from backgrounds in academia, farming, and community organizations discuss new ways of looking at food policy and practices in terms of social justice and sustainability. Each of the nine essays makes the case that food is a focal point for public policy making, social activism, and cultural...
Chapter
This chapter critically examines the promise of organic farm volunteering programs such as WWOOF in meeting organic farmers’ need for affordable labor in Hawaii. While organic farm volunteering offers a short term coping strategy for some organic farmers, the cultural logic and rationale that propels these programs perpetuates the underlying labor...
Chapter
Many competing visions are imposed on rural Hawaii, visions that are shaped by history, culture, and political economic interests in this state. Efforts to improve food democracy and food production for local consumption must be viewed against this backdrop. Furthermore, they must be placed in the context of globalized agro-food systems as well as...
Chapter
"Our analysis situates Hawai‘i’s seed corn industry within the development of industrial corn, the technological change in corn breeding, the organizational restructuring in the seed corn industry, and the changes in Hawai‘i’s agrarian landscape. We draw upon David Harvey’s (1989) concept of “flexible accumulation” to explain the rapid shifts in se...
Article
Organic farm volunteering programs facilitate opportunities for volunteer tourists to fulfill their desire for authenticity and meaning through farm experience, while simultaneously meeting organic farmers’ need for affordable labor. We situate this presumably mutual partnership within the broader expansion of market-based activism and the politica...

Article
Full-text available
Agriculture dominated the culture and economy of Hawaii until the mid-twentieth century, but has since been in a prolonged state of decline. This article examines strategies in Hawaii's diversified agriculture that seek to revitalize its agrarian sector and the difficult challenges these efforts face within the globalized agrofood systems. Drawing...
Article
Full-text available
Natural resource planning is often riddled with uncertainty, especially when new technologies are introduced. While an “adaptive management” approach is attractive in such situations, it is difficult to implement where there is a real or perceived decline of the state. Based on a case study of mariculture development in Hawaii, the authors suggest...
Article
Full-text available
Over the past several decades rural communities have adopted spatial information technology (SIT) for developing management plans, monitoring change, asserting territorial claims, and other purposes. Yet to date few researchers have examined the socio-ethical implications of these technologies, particularly in developing countries. In June 2003, a...
Article
Full-text available
Environmental planning is an arena of policy making in which formal public deliberation is among the most extensive. At the same time, environmental disputes can also be among the most resistant to resolution, often becoming entangled in issues that some describe as “intangible”. The discourse is largely structured by regulatory frameworks, such as...
Article
Full-text available
This book and the research project on which it is based emerged out of common and yet distinct concerns among the editors that spatial information technologies (SITs)—at least in certain contexts and at certain scales—can lead to consequences that raise important ethical questions. Three interrelated dimensions in which these consequences have mani...
Article
Full-text available
Technological development in open-ocean mariculture has opened up the possibility of a new growth industry for Hawai`i, yet its introduction has not been without controversy. Marine aquaculture requires changes in property institutions that govern the ocean space, a key resource for marine aquaculture. This paper examines initial opposition to ocea...

Article
The spread of fruit-based agroforestry in Java attests to the proposition that market incentives enhance the adoption rate of tree planting in agroforestry. Commercialization, however, changes the social relations of production and creates unexpected land-use patterns. The case study examines the development of multiple tenures associated with the...

This article describes some methods used and problems encountered in a research project on "Rural Household Economies and the Role of Women" in west Java. The main typs of information the research hoped to provide included; 1) labor-utilization patterns within the household's division of labor including both income producing and housework; 2) house...

Chapter 12 in Contentious geographies : environmental knowledge, meaning, scale / edited by Michael K. Goodman, Maxwell T. Boykoff, Kyle T. Evered. This chapter and the research project on which it is based emerged out of common and yet distinct concerns among the authors that spatial information technologies – at least in certain contexts and at c...
Article
"Technological development in breeding and growing Pacific threadfin (mo`i) in open-ocean cages has opened up the possibility of a new growth industry for Hawai`i. However, two types of challenges must be overcome before this potential could be realized. First, the issues of equity and overlapping claims associated with marine aquaculture productio...

"The workshop is the ninth in a series on 'Community-Based Management of Forestlands'. Since 1986, the Ford Foundation and the East-West Center have attempted to document the changes taking place in the management of Asia's forests as national governments collaborate with local communities and civil society to design win-win land management scenari...
