With Willie Perdomo and Christina Olivares
Across the enforced borders of race and place, five authors discuss centuries-old fantasies about labor, class, gender, immigration, the body, and sovereignty. These writers, from the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Cuba, share a history of American invasion and rule. Their writing reveals mostly untapped or simply ignored versions of US history. In short, their richly varied work can be seen together. In fact, such richness can make America see its secret self.
