UNIVERSITY OF GUAM PRESS
The University of Guam Press (UOG Press) publishes an array of academic and literary books and journals with a specific focus on the unique history, environment, peoples, cultures, and languages of the islands that make up the Western Pacific region. The University of Guam Press strives to increase the availability of exceptional scholarly and literary texts that can be used as learning resources about Guam and Micronesia for people and institutions in the region and throughout the world.
UOG Press is an integral part of the Richard Flores Taitano Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC), which holds the most extensive repository of information about Guam and Micronesia. UOG Press extends the MARC’s mission of collecting, preserving, and providing access to reliable and accurate information about the peoples and cultures of the Western Pacific, thereby advancing scholarship and learning in and about the region.
The UOG Press will soon release a fresh edition of the classic tale of Mariquita, one of the most widely read books about the CHamoru experience during World War II.
Through the collaborative efforts of University of Guam Professor Emerita Rebecca A. Stephenson, Dean Emerita Mary L. Spencer, and 12 contributing authors, a new book explores the Ulithi Atoll and various aspects of its life, culture, economics, human development, island challenges, and ecology.
UOG Press accepted a bronze medal for its publication of "Lina'la': Portraits of Life at Litekyan" at the Independent Publisher Book Awards held on May 28 in New York City.
Ancient CHamorus marked time based on the cycles of the moon and the seasons of their islands. Mindful of this tradition, author Dolores Barcinas Santos captured the seasons of her family in Guam's village of Malesso' with her new book, "13 Months in Malesso'."
"In the year since its launch, the University of Guam Press publication 'Lina'la': Portraits of Life at Litekyan' has received international attention, won an award and is on its way into Guam classrooms." Read more in this article by the Pacific Daily News.
