Prof. Harris-McCoy will discuss and field questions about his current research project on the life of Rev. Claude DuTeil and the formation of Honolulu’s well-known Institute for Human Services (IHS). That institution is at the forefront of feeding and housing the homeless in our city, since its founding by Rev. DuTeil. This project blends biography, political and urban history, sociology and the history of charity, social welfare and shelters in Honolulu. Prof. Harris-McCoy is the author of Artemidorus Oneirocritica [The Interpretation of Dreams]: Text, Translation, and Commentary (Oxford University Press, 2012).
