This is a free event but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can prepare enough chairs.
As part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the redress settlement of September 22, 1988, the Nikkei National Museum with Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities and the Asian Canadian Studies Society is pleased to sponsor a panel discussion of eminent scholars who have made significant contributions to the growing body of research on Japanese Canadians.
What research is currently being done on or with Japanese Canadians? How has the politics of representation changed since the redress settlement? What kinds of theoretical frameworks and critical approaches are relevant for the study of Japanese Canadians? What directions can research take in the future?
