I've got a couple of posts that I've started recently on everything from Jesus Christ Superstar and Barack Obama to the political predispositions of Chamorros. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to finish any of them yet because some other writing commitments have come up.
I'm working on a new article right now for an anthology on minority resilience. My piece will discuss Chamorro resiliency to American colonization, focusing on the paradox of the apparent "success" of American colonization of the island following World War II, and at the same time the oppositional consciousness and decolonization movements that have also emerged. I've written quite a bit on both of these topics on my blog and in my academic work, and so part of this article will be a reworking of stuff I've already done, but also an effort to push it a little bit further in hopes of providing a window into the state of Chamorro consciousness today.
Pues depensa yu', I thought instead though I'd share some of the recent blogs and blog posts I've been checking out. I nobia-hu Rashne recently started a blog of her own, and her first post on the Democratic Primary and feminism is very insightful.
