Island Territories: Unpacking U.S. Colonies in the Caribbean and Pacific explores the relationship between the mainland US and its territories of Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, in the Caribbean, and in the Pacific, Guåhan (Guam) and American Samoa. Through interviews with scholars from the islands, we aim to answer questions about the history of the colonial relationship, identity, politics, and the economy, while shining a light on their most present challenges and addressing questions about their futures in the 21st Century.
