Craig Santos Perez: “Militarism, Tourism, and Oceanic Voices”

The Pacific Islands Research Cluster presents:

“Militarism, Tourism, and Oceanic Voices”

Chamoru poet Craig Santos Perez, Ph.D. candidate in Comparative Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley, is co-founder of Achiote Press and author of all with ocean views (Overhere, 2007) and preterrain (Corollary, 2008). Reading from his book, from UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY (Tinfish, 2008), Perez discusses visual, spatial and narrative strategies in his work that address the Chamoru relationship with Guahan (Guam) and U.S. military and tourist industries.
