JAPANESE INCARCERATION: PUBLIC MEMORY AND CULTURAL PRODUCTION, PART I

Presented in collaboration with the Poetry Society of America and the Poetry Coalition Coalition’s “Poetry and the Body” theme, this two-part event brings together artists, scholars, poets, and photographers who draw on the history of Japanese incarceration during World War II and its archival, material evidence in their innovative practices. During Part I, poet Kimiko Hahn introduces an in-gallery reading prior to a conversation between poet Christine Kitano and photographer Kevin Miyazaki, moderated by Tom Ikeda, executive director of Densho, an organization dedicated to acquiring, preserving, and disseminating oral histories and other artifactual materials around the unjust incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.
