The cultural heritages of Japan and the U.S. are in many ways very different. Japanese society has traditionally emphasized collectivism while American society has long promoted individualism.

Being socially situated in the middle of two contrasting societal traditions, Japanese Americans often encounter a great deal of cultural conflict in their personal lives. This lecture will explore these issues using illustrations from notable incidents in Japanese American history as well as aspects of contemporary Japanese American communities.

Free with Museum admission. Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
