Wednesday, August 19 • 8:00am - 12:00pm
Japanese-American Confinement Collections Symposium

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come explore collections held nationwide documenting Japanese-American internment during World War II.  From 1942 to 1945 the U.S. imprisoned more than 110,000 individuals having Japanese ancestry from the West Coast and Hawaii, the majority being American citizens, in isolated camps enclosed by barbed wire. These collections provide unique research, pedagogical, and collaborative opportunities covering multiple disciplines: civil rights, sociology, political science, arts and crafts, and sustainable communities. Those interested in pursuing JACS grants are encouraged to attend.
