My lecture will be generally about Poetry, Power, and Witness. It’s called: “‘Ta(la)ya’: Pacific Literature, Genealogical Testimony, and Guam’s Struggle for War Reparations.” I gave an earlier version of this lecture at UCLA and CCSF in 2010.
I am honored to be part of Other Voices. This program is “meant to raise student awareness of the historical debates about multiculturalism, to help students reconsider the ways we conceptualize identities in the United States, and to affirm student experiences, promote student dialogue and activism, and discuss the role of literature in thinking about interactions between subjects, communities, and institutions.”
Special thanks to Alberto Ledesma.
Hope to see some of you there. And please Share with anyone you think might be interested.
