International Security Studies will continue its Fall 2022 ISS Colloquium series on Tuesday, October 4th, at 11:45am, with a presentation by Kristin Oberiano, an assistant professor of History at Wesleyan University.

She will present a draft chapter of her book project “Territorial Discontent: Chamorros, Filipinos, and the Making of the United States Empire in Guam”.

Kristin’s research examines the evolution of the political, social, and cultural relations between Indigenous Chamoru people and Filipino migrants and immigrants under the United States empire in Guam in the twentieth century. She earned her doctorate in history from Harvard University, and her research has been supported by the Fulbright Fellowship, the Harvard Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, the Harvard Asia Center, and the Harvard Center for American Political Studies. Kristin is a board member of Guåhan Sustainable Culture 501(c)(3), a non-profit organization dedicated to food sovereignty on Guam.

The talk will be held at Allwin Hall, Seminar Room (31 Hillhouse Avenue). Attendance is limited to members of the Yale campus community.
