The History of Hawaii
Taught by Gabriella Corey
After receiving a degree in the History of Art and Architecture from College of Charleston in 2013, Gabriella moved to Germany to travel and work. In September 2015, Gabriella completed her master’s thesis from the Universtiy of Glasgow on clocks and shfiting temporality in Medieval western art and moved from London back to Germany. In January, she accepted a position with Christie’s Old Master Department and moved to a Success Specialist position at artnet in April. Outside of work, Gabriella’s interests focus around getting lost in new areas of the city, eating cupcakes at every possible opportunity, and reading an incredibly random selection of books.
Much more than a beautiful island with celeb-ridden beaches, Hawaii is home to a unique and exciting history. Learn about the settlement of the islands by Polynesian voyagers, the establishment of a powerful royal dynasty, and the eventual colonialism by the UK and eventually, the USA.
You'll also get to learn about their fabulous celebrations like the Luau, Mayday...and Spam Day!
