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.
The Pacific Arts Association Europe is offering an annual scholarship to support the participation of Pacific Islander artists and students at the annual PAA-E conference. The scholarship is for a maximum of €300, in addition to the conference fee and attendance at the conference dinner.
