The 1944 Nisei Draft at Heart Mountain, Wyoming: Its Relationship to the Historical Representation of the World War II Japanese American Evacuation

授業案の概要:

By examining a controversial aspect of the World War II eviction and detention experience of Americans of Japanese ancestry—the drafting of U.S. citizen Nisei from behind barbed wires at a federal internment facility in Wyoming administered by the War Relocation Authority—this brief unit of several-days duration is designed to introduce students to two controversial historiographical issues.

The first one involves the changing representation of past reality. The second, and closely related, issue pertains to how historical truths and value judgments are reflective of a society's circumstances and power relations. Since the situation under examination occurred in 1944 during the Japanese American Evacuation—yet achieved renewed prominence within the movement for Japanese American redress between the late 1960s and the present—this unit may be taught profitably in conjunction with either World War II or recent U.S. history.
