DR. CRAIG SANTOS PEREZ: Home, an Archipelago of Belonging; Ocean Navigating; & the Last Safe Habitat
In this conversation with advaya, Craig Santos Perez discusses archipelagic poetics and thinking, the history and politics and culture of Guam, homemaking and homebuilding as a diasporic individual, the ocean as metaphor, and archipelagic kin-making. Craig speaks to us with and from his background as a migratory, global islander, an indigenous Chamoru (Chamorro) from the Pacific Island of Guåhan (Guam), as a poet, environmentalist, political activist, and a father.
This conversation was held ahead of advaya’s upcoming course KINSHIP, of which Craig is a teacher. Find out more and register for the multi-teacher, six-week course starting 31st January 2023, here https://www.kinship-course.com/
