Apoie o Projeto
Descubra Nikkei é um website comunitário sobre a identidade, história e experiências dos nikkeis. O objetivo deste projeto é proporcionar um espaço aberto à comunidade, de forma que todos possam compartilhar idéias, fazer novas descobertas e se conectar com outros através das variadas experiências, culturas e histórias dos nikkeis.
O site DiscoverNikkei.org é um ponto de base do Projeto do Legado Nikkei, criado pelo Museu Nacional Japonês Americano, com grande apoio financeiro da Nippon Foundation.
Criação do Site
The foundation for the Discover Nikkei Web site traces back to the National Museum’s International Nikkei Research Project (1998–2001), a unique collaborative project that involved a multidisciplinary and multinational research team of more than one hundred scholars from ten countries and fourteen participating institutions. It was coordinated by the Japanese American National Museum and generously supported by The Nippon Foundation.
The research and relationships developed through the International Nikkei Research Project (INRP) created an important global network. The Nikkei Legacy Project was initiated in April 2003 with funding by The Nippon Foundation to build on the work of the INRP. For the first two years of the project, we focused on developing the conceptual framework and site architecture for the site. DiscoverNikkei.org was launched officially in March 2005. Since then, Discover Nikkei has continued to expand both in content, and in the rich relationships and connections that the project has fostered.
