I am currently at work on my book manuscript, “Monetary Authorities: Capitalism and Decolonization in the American Colonial Philippines,” which charts the historical intersections and tensions between race, knowledge, sovereignty, and capitalism in the U.S. Pacific empire and the Philippine colony. I have also started researching my next book on the structural entanglements between unemployment, disability, and colonialism in the Pacific World in the long twentieth century.
