Call for papers: Empire Building and Resistance: Art and Colonialism in the Pacific Islands Session at the College Art Association conference in Chicago (February 12-15, 2020) 

Pacific Islands that have been annexed and occupied by the United States are vital sites for interrogating the forces of colonization—political, economic, scientific, and cultural—and responses to them.

This panel seeks proposals that examine the visual and material culture of the Pacific with an emphasis on how images and objects endorse or resist the United States’ mission of expansion and exploitation.
