Robert Diaz is a doctoral candidate whose research focuses on the confluence of U.S. imperialism in the Pacific World, scientific expertise, and lived imperialism of youths in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His current work explores how youths in the Philippines, Hawai’i, and Guam interpreted and played active roles in the American colonial project, along with the ways that discourses of childhood shaped American colonial policy between between 1890 and 1946. His primary contribution to ReConnect/ReCollect’s work on reparative description was the Glossary of Harmful Terms.
