He is also a Ph.D. candidate in Comparative Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley. Reading from his book, from UNINCORPORATED TERRITORY [saina] (Omnidawn, 2010), 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.
