Dr. Greg Robinson
UNDERSTANDING WARTIME JAPANESE CONFINEMENT:
PAST TRAGEDY AND CURRENT WARNING

Portland State University Center for Japanese Studies is hosting a lecture from Dr. Greg Robinson of Université du Québec À Montréal. Although the wartime removal and confinement of Japanese Americans, often (if imprecisely) called the "internment," has been comprehensively studied by three generations of scholars, it is only through a transnational narrative, set within an enlarged timeframe, that it can be properly understood. At the same time, studying the wartime challenges to the citizenship rights of Japanese Americans on the mainland and in Hawaii gives us tools to better understand our current situation.
