Tabitha Espina Publishes Chapters in A Marianas Mosaic

Tabitha Espina’s chapters “The Halo Halo (‘Mix Mix’) Generation” and “Writing and Identity in Three Generations of Chamorritas and Filipinas on Guam,” the latter co-authored with Sharleen Santos-Bamba, CLASS Associate Dean at University of Guam, have been published in A Marianas Mosaic: Signs and Shifts in Contemporary Island Life, published by Proa Publications and the Northern Marianas Humanities Council.

A Marianas Mosaic features authors in and of the Mariana Islands writing in voices that range from scholarly to poetic about the social, political, and cultural dynamics unfolding across the archipelago. This mosaic of perspectives touches on topics pertinent to contemporary island life including traditional healing, family trauma, sovereignty movements, local clothing brands, multimedia advocacy, spirituality, and more. This collection illuminates the complexity and beauty of the region and provides a deeper understanding of Marianas history and experiences.

The work is available for purchase from University of Guam Press.
